After upgrading from version 5 to 6.0 unable to connect using some connections.
Creating new connection doesn't help. 
The error message is mentioned in the synopsis.
The funny thing is that one connection won't connect, but another connection to the same server (different user) will.

All connection are remote.

Server versions are 5.5.30 and 5.0.96, both under cPanel on Linux.

How to repeat:
On the home screen, click a connection under Connections.

Somehow, search didn't find that bug.
