Queries say they return rows, but no rows shown. Tables etc just show as "fetching"

I'm running the latest MySQLWorkbench 6.3.9 on MacOS 10.13.

When I connect to a database remotely (over SSH) I can connect fine, but queries do not work. What seems to happen is that I'll execute a basic SELECT query, it will tell me how many rows are returned at the bottom, but it will not actually show any rows at all. Attempting to run the same query again shows a progress wheel next to the query tab which continues indefinitely.

Also, attempting to list tables for any database shows "Fetching" for tables, views, etc.

Note: I can fetch tables, views, etc BEFORE I try to run a query (any query). After that, it never works.

I have already run mysql_upgrade, so that's not the problem. I also have no issues connecting at all, so I don't think the connection is wrong, though I have tried disabling SSL, leaving it as "If available" etc, compression on and off, nothing seems to work.

I have also tried a competing product with the same settings & database and that has no problems at all, so I'm convinced the problem is localised to MySQLWorkbench.

I have also tried using older versions (down to 6.3.3), and completely removed it from my system including the configuration and reinstalled, etc.

Looking for some help - thanks in advance!
