Description:
It is impossible to use the latest version of mysql.exe in Workbench to import data.

How to repeat:
In Workbench, go to Edit>Preferences>Administration and set "Path to mysql Tool" to the non-bundled version. Probably this: "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\bin\mysql.exe"

Import a MySQL dump using Data Import/Restore and the import will hang.

stop the import, blank out the "Path to mysql Tool" setting, try the import again, and it will work.

Suggested fix:
Fix the problem introduced by mysql.exe 5.7.19.

My own investigation revealed that when mysql.exe is started, the process is not started correctly. As in, the path after the ">" character in the command line is missing. If you look at the command line in Task Manager while importing, you will see the different arguments between the bundled and latest mysql.exe.
