I found that the latest 2 versions (6.13, 6.14) cannot connect to my MySQL server (5.0.26) in a stable way. It very often reported Lost Connection or Connection has been closed when a query is submitted. 

When I fallback to 6.12, however, everything is stable again.

How to repeat:
Connect to MySQL server (5.0.26) and run a simple query.

Yes, I'm aware that the latest workbench doesn't support 5.x server officially. But since 6.12 works without problem (I click Connection Anyway and everything works fine afterward), I thought 6.13/6.14 should work similarly.
