How to repeat:
Open DB server adminsitrator > Server Status > Connections 

Select Refresh Rate : 1 second 
Wait for refresh. Connections pane gets a red cross and GDI crashes

Thank you for the bug report. I couldn't repeat connected locally with a server 5.6.11 on Windows 8 and Windows 7. Please describe your connection and server. Thanks.

I can repeat connecting with ssl with server 5.1 running on Centos 6.3 (see prior attached screen-shot).

from screenshot i can see that load and memory are not monitore. mine are.
When creating connection i selected:
1. Remote Host -> Address: my intranet server -> Next
2. Connection Method: Standard TCP/IP -> Next
3. Entered password...
Get Server version 5.1.49-3
Get Server OS: Linux
4. SSH login based management ->
Operating System: Linux
Mysql isntallation Type: Ubuntu Linux (Mysql package)
-> Next
... Finish.

last time it crashed i was dumping 800MB database from one server and importing it into the one that was monitored. Tried it just now and it also crashed.
Maybe the graphs can't handle a spike in monitoring data. Attached screenshots.

Please describe how you did the dumping and import process. Thanks.
[15 May 2013 5:25] Justinas Urbanavičius
i just do:
mysqldump.exe --quick --default-character-set=utf8 --skip-lock-tables --max-allowed-packet=128M -h${src.db.server} -u${src.db.user} -p${src.db.pass} -q ${src.db.name} | mysql.exe --default-character-set=utf8 -h${dst.db.server} -u${dst.db.user} -p${dst.db.pass} -q -B ${dst.db.name}

the data is dumped form one linux server and immediately piped to another described earlier linux server, the middle server that does the work is Windows Server 2008 R2 x64.

How big was the loaded script?
[12 Jul 2013 5:35] Justinas Urbanavičius
It was a dump file actually, about 1.2G.
152 tables, 2205000 rows across all tables
[7 Aug 2013 0:35] Alfredo Kojima
Did the data being imported include blobs or non-ascii characters?
I've tried repeating with a dump being imported continually for an hour, but I still don't get this error.
[7 Aug 2013 6:42] Justinas Urbanavičius
Dumps include mostly strings, of TEXT, some of LONGTEXT. Strings are in utf8 using utf8_general_ci collation, with Lithuanian characters:

Don't know if this is related, but workbench is running on windows server that i connect through RDP. GDI as I understand is related to graphics, and RDP could be related to that.

This is a duplicate of bug #68146
Please upgrade to version 6.0.5 or newer
[7 Aug 2013 19:03] Justinas Urbanavičius
How is this duplicate of some migration bug?

they aren't even related :) I don't migrate anything, and don't use migration feature, the window that lists queries just stops redrawing and crashes
[14 Aug 2013 11:15] Justinas Urbanavičius
Problem i'm experiencing, seems to be resolved in v6.0.6.11184, so maybe it can be closed.
