Appears to be duplicate of bugs: 11164 and 11120.  However, these bugs indicate it is fixed in 1.0.10.  If so, then it is broken in 1.0.13rc.

How to repeat:
Oracle 9.2 Win XP

CREATE TABLE `moguser`.`mog_auction` (
  `oid` VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL,
  `last_modified_date` DATETIME NOT NULL,
  `creation_date` DATETIME NOT NULL,
  `created_by_id` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
  `last_modified_by_id` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
  `auction_type` INT(2) NOT NULL,
  `status` INT(2) NOT NULL,
  `item_id` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
  `item_type` VARCHAR(30) NULL,
  `title` VARCHAR(100) NOT NULL,
  `description` MEDIUMTEXT NULL,
  `start_time` DATETIME NOT NULL,
  `end_time` DATETIME NOT NULL,
  `initial_price` DECIMAL(10, 2) NULL,
  `publish_reserve_price` INT(1) NULL,
  `reserve_price` DECIMAL(10, 2) NULL,
  `purchase_now_price` DECIMAL(10, 2) NULL,
  `currency` VARCHAR(5) NULL,
  `total_items` INT(6) NOT NULL,
  `items_bid` INT(6) NULL,
  `bid_count` INT(6) NULL,
  `current_price` DECIMAL(10, 2) NULL,
  `current_bid_id` VARCHAR(20) NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`oid`),
  INDEX `nuk_auction_created_by_id` (`created_by_id`(50)),
  INDEX `nuk_auction_item` (`item_id`(20), `item_type`(30)),
  INDEX `nuk_auction_start_time` (`start_time`(7)),
  INDEX `nuk_auction_status` (`status`)

I am assuming that status is the offending subpart key.

I downloaded 1.0.10 and the error was still there.

I then tried to decipher the error to see what was causing it and it was related to the date/datetime columns.  The migration toolkit for some reason decided to do a substring on a date/datetime column for the index part of the create table.

When I removed the '(#)' from the date/datetime column in the index script, everything worked fine.

Therefore the change would be to the following line:

INDEX `nuk_auction_start_time` (`start_time`(7)),

should be

INDEX `nuk_auction_start_time` (`start_time`),
