Unable to expand or collapse any group (Tables, Views, Stored Procedures, Functions) in the Schemas Tab (after I connect to a database), using the left and right arrow keys of my keyboard.

My System setup:
 Installed WorkBench 6.0 (64-bit) in Linux Mint (Cinnamon), 64-bit OS running as guest in a VMWare Player (6.0.1) running atop a Windows 8.1 Pro (64-bit) OS on a HP Envy UltraBook 4-1105dx

The keys work in every other application to expand collapse groups and the left/right arrow keys navigate when editing text, as expected.

How to repeat:
Install Workbench 6.0 in a Linux box (all 64-bit versions), preferably in a VM.
Create a new connection to any database server
Click on the newly created connection
Go to "schemas" tab
click on any group (Tables, say)

Now, try pressing right arrow to expand the group. 
Or, if the list already expanded, try pressing the left arrow on any item of the list and you'll observe that the group leader is not selected and the list does not collapse.

Suggested fix:
Enable keyboard navigation in the schemas' groups (if it is not done already)

Ignore the bug. It works if I use "Shift+Arrow Key"... A minor annoyance, but bearable.

Thank you for the feedback. I couldn't repeat on Linux Mint 16 Petra.
