MySQL workbench hangs when you make the first connection and try to query any table in the first tab.  Openning a second connection allows queries in the second tab to work even though the first tab has hung queries.

How to repeat:
Bring up MySQL workbench and click on the local connection.  The first tab will open up.  Open up a schema.  Open the “Tables”.  Click on the icon with the lightening bolt.  This will open a query tab and a query is supposed to execute to show the contents of the table.  This query will hang.

The workaround is to never perform a query in the first connection, but to open a second connection/tab.  The queries will run there.

Version of MySQL was installed from mysql-5.7.16-osx10.11-x86_64.dmg.

Suggested fix:
No suggestions.

Bug seems to be even more pronounced for me since macOS Sierra Version 10.12.2.
