This is hard to diagnose because it causes X or kwin to freeze.

How to repeat:
1) Open mysql workbench
2) Connect to a server
3) Expand a schema so a list of tables is visible
4) Interrupt the connection to the server (e.g. disconnect network)
5) Right click a table to go to "Show tables"

Upon doing this, the right click menu appears without any entries (just the shadow is visible) and X or Kwin crashes (cannot tell which) and no X programs respond. The only way to fix it, is switch to a different TTY and kill the mysql-workbench process.

Not repeatable on CentOS 6.5 with GNome.

This is still happening with 6.2.5. I'm not sure if it's a problem with mysql-workbench, x.org or KDE but it happens almost every time. Occasionally it will correctly display the menu and give the correct error about not being connected.

It is, however, definitely related directly to the right-click menu.
