>> Need? I suppose that’s not really absolutely true. A GUI is a tool to allow things to be done quicker. It can be used to avoid learning things, but, that’s not the concern necessarily. Keeps a nice history, pre-defined and friendly queries, nice monitoring on multiple systems, I could go on. I see it as similar to saying who needs Windows (which I don’t use but same idea) as opposed to dos. Not entirely of course, but, the idea is to make one more productive. Command line vs GUI. I like how it categorizes system status, variables, tracks client connections, connects to numerous machines using ssh tunnels, etc. I can do most of that without workbench, just slower. It allows me to use my clients machines GUi for organization and filing and archiving of scripts in a faster manner. I connect to so many machines I just find it’s organization useful. But YMMV.

Agree on those answers but it does not tell us what is broken in compatibility . There is a parameter to fake MySQL handshake may the author of the mail can test this . 
MariaDB enable sql error plugin to capture are SQL and protocol errors. would be constructive to see what is broken here .
