I try to transfer my database from oracle ( to MySQL beta (5.0.9). The column with the type FLOAT(126) is not transferred correct. It gives and error message when the migration toolkit creates the new mysql table and the datatype in the create statement is (nil). When I try to modify the statment and recreate the table again - nothing happens, the changes are not in. Tested on different tables with FLOAT type.

How to repeat:
Create a table in Oracle with column of FLOAT type. Run the migration toolkit and try to transfer the data.
