MySQL Workbench keeps track of your opened tabs in the SQL Editor. This is a really useful feature.

But if you move a connection to a different connection group and open the connection again, you won't find your opened tabs from before.

How to repeat:
On WB's main screen, right click on any connection and move it to a connection group by using the "Move to group..." option. Open the connection from the new connection group. All the opened tabs from when you last used that connection are gone.

Suggested fix:
WB still keeps this info in ~/.mysql/workbench/sql_workspaces, under a directory with the old name of the connection. Instead of creating a new directory with the new name, just rename the old one there.
