I can not get the command line MySqlWorkbench.exe to work as documented.

I try "MySqlWorkbench.exe -version" and all that happens is Workbench opens to the Welcome screen.  Does not show version anywhere.

I have tried the -query option.  I have tried the -script option.  None of them work.  I have also tried with --query.  That works.  Or seems to.  I get a tab using the connection stated in the --query option.  Documentation clearly says that on windows you use -query.   

How to repeat:
Run MySqlWorkbench.exe -version from command line.
