When connecting to MySQL over an SSH tunnel, MySQL Workbench crashes when trying to view table records.

The logs (attached in full in a private comment) state:

[ERR][     AutoCCache]: Exception during update of cache for 'schema_name
table_name': Lost connection to MySQL server during query

I can connect to the remote database over SSH using MySQL Workbench, which notifies me all parameters are correct.

How to repeat:
Happens every time, rendering the software useless.

Suggested fix:
Better error handling: state connection is lost, and allow manual re-attempts to connect.

Thank you for the bug report. Against which MySQL Server are you connecting and remote OS (I couldn't repeat connecting with 5.6.19 running on OSX 10.9). Thanks.

It is the same for me from Win7 64 bit and to mysql 5.5.37 over ssh on a debian. Tried to downgrade to workbench 6.1.4, but thats even worse... before i never had this kind of problem, but didnt try to downgrade further.

This happens very often and then it is impossible to open the table for editing, even after restart (other tables would still work, but the one that crashed, will constantly crash).

When i get lost connection during query, i can do anything (reconnect to rdbms icon), the next query will crash the whole program... and the lost connection is strange anyway, it is really common when i try to select from another db - in the same connection - than from last time, but comes random too.

This is really critical...

This appears to be resolved in build 1788
