Method migrateColumnToMysql in MigrationMssql around line 242, BINARY is only compared with equals rather than equalsIgnoreCase. This causes some problems in some migrations, as a null is returned and the column isn't handled.

How to repeat:
create table with binary column < 256 chars long in mssql and export to mysql

Suggested fix:
Change equals to equalsIgnoreCase
