MySql Workbench - Invalid Options

Answers: Have 2 answers
I've followed the arch wiki and installed maria db. I've then installed mysql-workbench from that aur, but I cannot connect to a local db. I get this error:
Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at
  Unsupported option provided to mysql_options()
1 Check that mysql is running on server
2 Check that mysql is running on port 3306 (note: 3306 is the default, but this can be changed)
3 Check the root has rights to connect to from your address (mysql rights define what clients can connect to the server and from which machines)
4 Make sure you are both providing a password if needed and using the correct password for connecting from the host address you're connecting from
When I click on the connection, and hit "Test Connection" I get this error:
Unsupported option provided to mysql_options()
I know mysql is running because I can connect via the CLI:
➜ Downloads mysql -u root -p
Enter password:

And I know it is running on port 3306:
➜ Downloads sudo netstat -nap | grep 3306
tcp6 0 0 :::3306 :::* LISTEN 16369/mysqld
Any idea?

The best answer: Did you find out what was wrong? I started to have exactly the same problem on my home computer, although it works correctly at my work computer with very similar configuration.
