Description:
Workbench shows an "unhandled exception" popup if the audit.log file is missing.

This can happen when you first enable the audit log plugin, and click "Get TimeStamp Ranges" before the server has written the file.

How to repeat:
Configure the audit log plugin

On the server, do
mv /path/to/audit.log /path/to/audit.log.missing

In workbench, click "GetTimestamp Ranges".

Fixed as of MySQL Workbench 6.0.8, and here's the changelog entry:

´╗┐An unhandled exception would be thrown if the "audit.log" file was
missing.

Thank you for the bug report.
