Description:
Dropping then recreating a fulltext index on two columns with ~10,000 rows of random  data usually fails (making the columns NOT NULL changes the value cited in the error from 'NULL-NULL' to ''; creating the index for the first time after inserting the rows changes the index cited from <table>.<fulltext-index-name> to <table>.PRIMARY)

How to repeat:
See attached script; error does not occur every time and may be impacted by the timestamp used in the UUIDs since it usually fails reliably but sometimes starts to succeed many attempts in a row. Increasing the number of rows increases the chance of an error as does increasing the number of columns included in the index.

Have the same issue, was able to reproduce it using the above attached python (creates about ~4m rows in 40 sql files + 2 other sql files (create database, alter table), and runs the scripts...

Seems to fail frequently...

Running 99_altertable.sql in mysql
mysql: [Warning] Using a password on the command line interface can be insecure.
ERROR 1062 (23000) at line 4: Duplicate entry 'NULL-NULL-NULL' for key 'customers.customerFullText'

I forgot to add, the above is reproducible on MySQL 8.0.30.

We ran into this issue as well. Not sure if anyone knows any workaround for this?
