I cannot add a new user from the MySQL Administrator GUI.

It is beyond me how you people shipped this product out without testing such an unbelievably trivial feature - and it is equally bizarre how no one has ever found this bug before.

My system:
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
MySQL 5718

How to repeat:
1) Go to MySQL Administrator GUI
2) Go to "User Administration"
3) Add a user - add user name / password etc
4) Click Apply Changes and receive the following error messages:

 dialog box pops up saying: "Error while storing the user information. The user might have been deleted. Please refresh the user list."

command line error: "** Message: save user: error adding new user entry"

How could this not have been spotted already in all these years?

In your bug reporting page, why would you not have "MySQL Administrator GUI" in a category on it's own?!?!

"MySQL Administrator" has been discontinued for at least 5 years. It was a tool for MySQL 5.0.x.  There is no guarantee that it will work with recent servers.

There are other GUI tools ...
