    Unhappy Kettle 3.0.0 RC1 unable to connect to MySQL DB

    I'm interested in the possibilities of Kettle for generating test data so I have installed this on my Windows workstation, which is also running MySQL5 with a few test databases.
    When Spoon starts, it presents me with a screen for creating a new database connection (Image 1). I choose "New", and enter all the things you would expect for a MySQL database (Image 2) and this works fine - as I can see by using the "Explorer" (Image 3). I can see the tables and the data in them.
    However, when I return to the original window (Image 1) and try to accept the new connexion, I get the message below... and there seems no way around it (I have tried the standard user "root", "root@localhost", adding the new user "pentaho" with full privileges, changing the server from "localhost" to "", but nothing works):

    admin/admin if you create a new repository ... but you can use Kettle without repository as well.
