MySQL Workbench crashes dozens of times per day (literally) saving very simple values in the Result Grid. I can never perform more than 20 data updates through the Result Grid without Workbench crashing. Typical activity between crashes is 5-10 save operations of a single field.

When I change a value in the Result Grid, click Apply and then Apply again, Workbench will often crash. 90% of what I do is change an integer from some non-zero value to 0 and then save.

This happens while making changes to single records in:
- Any table of any size
- Any dataset of any size
- Any field of any type
- Any schema from any server

All of my connections are through SSH, but based on the stack traces indicate that it's a problem with MResultsetViewer tableView or VarGridModel::get_column_type and not the connection.

I have experienced this problem since updating to El Capitan GM (non-beta), and have continued having it on every El Capitan beta version.

I have lots and lots of crash dumps if you want them. The top of every one of the crash dumps is this:

How to repeat:

Double click a value to change it. Click Apply, then Apply again.

There doesn't seem to be any pattern, but it will crash often.

I have lots and lots of crash dumps if you'd like to have them. It seems from the crash dumps that you've got a problem with released tableView cells

Thank you for the bug report. To repeat using a table with 2 columns (int and varchar(20)) with 8 millions rows.
