When a query is partially selected, results of the query formatter are unpredictable.
For example, with 'flush privileges':
* when 'privileges' is selected 
  ** beautify, uppercase and lowercase fail with a unhandled exception
  ** 'indent lines' duplicates the keyword (the query becomes 'flush privilegesprivileges'
  ** 'unindent lines' does not unindent

How to repeat:
1. open the query editor
2. write down a query (e.g. 'flush privileges')
3. invoke the query format functions, one at the time
4. select (with your mouse) one keyword (e.g. 'flush')
5. invoke again all the query format options

this can be considered a duplicate of Bug #58358

This is not a duplicate. The behavior for partially selected is different from a fully selected query. (See what happens when you do "Indent" on a fully selected query and on a partially selected query)

Anyway, if you fix all the issues, I don't care what you call it.

An entry has been added to the 5.2.31 changelog:

In the Query Editor, if a query was partially selected, and then the beautifier run, the results were unpredictable. Problems included exceptions, duplicated tokens, and incorrect indentation.
