I've had the same problem, and found a solution that doesn't require switching to the Classic Theme (which is ugly as sin!). Workbench uses OpenGL, and that's what is conflicting with Vista. So you have two options:

Open Workbench in the Command line with MySQLWorkbench -help | more

You will see the option -swrendering, which when activated will turn off OpenGL.

Alternately, if you create a shortcut to Workbench, right click on the shortcut and go to Properties -> Shortcut. At the end of the Target field (after the close quotes), add -swrendering.

Voila! She opens in Vista with no problems and the nicer theme.
