We took a look at this bug along with several others recently. Unfortunately, triaging it against other critical bugs, I do not think we would get to investigating this in the near future. However, we have taken note of this internally, and when we revisit this functionality in the future, we will try and get this resolved.

Thanks for writing in to Microsoft.

I ran into a similar issue today after I determined that I'd run a large number of scripts agains what I thought was my test server, but in actuality it was against a production server. This was very painful for me to try to resolve and explain. Both the hover over for the query window and the status bar displayed the incorrect information.
