Can't connect when password not in vault

I've recently reinstalled my Windows and started with a fresh copy of Workbench 6.3. I'm trying to connect using the "Standard TCP/IP over SSH" method. The issue is that it works when I store the password in Vault, but it doesn't when I don't store the password and try to enter it manually (which is what I want to do, I use KeePass for better security).

The error message is:

Your connection attempt failed for user 'root' from your host to server at
Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (10061)

That "" part looks wrong as there's something else in the MySQL Hostname field - it's the hostname.

It looks like a bug since it works just fine when the same password is stored in vault.
