For some reason my copy of MySQL Workbench on one of my servers has started adding this --enable-cleartext-plugin option on every mysqldump command, which results in this error every time.

I just noticed this today but I suspect this started happening a few days ago when some other weird things also happened on this server. After a reboot all the bindings on my website had disappeared, as had the user security privileges on the website folder, and for some reason Shared Config was enabled in my redirection.config file. It all seems very random, and now this.
These are the options I have enabled, and I'm pretty sure these are default because when I click Restore Defaults nothing changes.
How can I tell MySQL Workbench to stop using the --enable-cleartext-plugin option?
