SSH Connections are currently not supported in MySQL for Excel, so they are grayed-out to appear disabled, but they are really not disabled since they are selectable.
If SSH connections are double-clicked the connection can't be established.
So the connections must really be disabled, not only appear disabled.

How to repeat:
1. Ensure you have any SSH connection added through MySQL Workbench.
2. Open MySQL for Excel.
3. Select a SSH connection that appears, grayed-out, the connection should not be selectable
4. Double click a SSH connection that appears, grayed-out, nothing should happen, but now the connection attempts to be opened.

Connections not supported by MySQL for Excel (like SSH and X Protocol ones) are no longer selectable.
If clicking a disable item in the list, the previous list selection will just be cleared but nothing else happens, double-clicking a disable item in the list has no effect now.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL for Excel 1.3.7 release, and here's the changelog entry:

SSL connections when created with MySQL Workbench should be inactive
within MySQL for Excel, which does not support SSL connections.

Thank you for the bug report.
