Sinisa and Victoria reported about this behaviour:

>     -> mytext longtext) default charset latin1 collate latin1_general_cs;
> Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.06 sec)
> mysql> show create table test1\G
> *************************** 1. row ***************************
>        Table: test1
> Create Table: CREATE TABLE `test1` (
>   `myblob` longtext character set latin1 collate latin1_general_cs,
>   `mytext` longtext character set latin1 collate latin1_general_cs
> 1 row in set (0.00 sec)

The above is wrong, a blob field should never take the table default
character set.

How to repeat:
Run the above.
