When a numeric field is created and the 'unsigned' flag is checked ( in the checkbox in the bottom-half of the screen ), the 'flags' column in the field list ( top-half of the screen ) correctly displays 'UNSIGNED'.

However if another field is selected, then the original field is selected, only the top-half of the screen correctly identifies the field as 'UNSIGNED'. ie the 'unsigned' checkbox remains unticked.

How to repeat:
Create table with an 'unsigned' numeric field and another field.
Select the other field.
Select the 'unsigned' numeric field.
Notice how the 'unsigned' checkbox is not selected.

Suggested fix:
Add code to set the status of the 'unsigned' checkbox when a new field is selected.
