If a wrong PK is selected, the error message does not refer to the PK (I understand it is probably not possible to know what exactly is
wrong), and the cursor indicates wrongly that something is being processed.

I select a table, and a field that is in fact not unique, so not a good PK candidate. If I try to load the table in this way, I get an error that does not state something like "The field you selected is not a suitable primary key", so it is difficult for the user to understand what is wrong.
Furthermore, the mouse cursor indicates some waiting state, but nothing is happening.
