Hey Antony,

since forgotten or mistyped credentials are one of the most common errors for newbies causing connection trouble we decided to require at least the user name when validating the entries for a connection. Since MySQL Workbench is meant as a personal tool, configured per user on a system this is not really a serious limitation (usually) since you'd need only a small number of different MySQL users for a single connection (if at all).
