"MYSQL Workbench" doesn't  see the difference between "ENUM('image', 'video', 'swf')" and "ENUM('image','video','swf')" (without whitespaces)

How to repeat:
1. Create column in table with type "ENUM('image', 'video', 'swf')" in MYSQL Workbench
2. Synchronize with the database
3. Synchronize again. Application generate SQL to change this column. But i didn't change it.

Suggested fix:
I think that MySQL database optimized type of column and deleted whitespaces. MYSQL Workbench gets scheme and tries to compare current column type with his one. It uses default string binary compare function.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.23 changelog:

When synchronizing with a live database, MySQL Workbench did not interpret whitespace in ENUMs correctly. For example, ENUM('image', 'video', 'swf') was seen as different from ENUM('image','video','swf'), causing the live server and model to appear unsynchronized.
