When a primary index contains a blob field, creation of secondary index fails with errormsg "BLOB/TEXT column used in key specification without keylength, even if the secondary index doesn't contain a blob field

How to repeat:
create table my1 (a int, b int, c tinyblob, d int, e int);
alter table my1 add primary key (a,b,c(255),d);
alter table my1 add key (a,b,d,e);

ERROR 1170 (42000): BLOB/TEXT column 'c' used in key specification without a key length
