Summary0001261: reload-table doesn't work with tables that have collate latin1_bin
DescriptionYou can't reload-table in mysql when you have specific data fields

The issue is MySQL's "collate latin1_bin". The column is defined as a VARCHAR so we expect to treat it like a text field. All the fields get converted to a text form and passed through CONCAT(). The problem is the field with "collate latin1_bin" is causing CONCAT() to return a binary result instead of a text one. The manual on CONCAT() says it will do that when it encounters binary data.

I tested queries in SquirrelSQL, and this query comes back as binary data:

select concat(test, textfield) from number_of_columns_bug;

However, I can force the results to come back correctly by casting the field, like this:

select concat(cast(test as char), textfield) from number_of_columns_bug;

The "collate latin1_bin" seems to designate that characters are actually handled with binary data.

The same CONCAT() function is used with the triggers, so why does it behave one way and work fine there, but act differently when we run a SELECT statement?
