When I do a "right click" on a routine and I click on "Alter Routine.."
The editing window opens for some routines but for others, nothing happens except a message in the status bar saying "Finished parsing Mysql SQL script".

How to repeat:
You can try with the Routine (in Private Comment)

What server version was used? The model provided doesn't contain any routines and the pasted routine doesn't execute in MySQL 5.5.8, because of some syntax errors. Once the errors are fixed, I was able to use ALTER on the routine.

The model contains 5 routines :
 - getConflictPeriode
 - getDisponibiliteByPeriode
 - getDisponibiliteTeacher
 - getStatsNbLearner
 - getTeacherFavoriteList

The version of server is 5.0.45-Debian_1ubuntu3.4

I have the same problem in linux with mysql-5.1.49-1ubuntu8, 

I reported it as new bug (sorry)

The problem is that the SPs have some syntax that is deprecated by the version of SQL WB knows. 
For example, TYPE=MyISAM in the CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE in the SP you pasted, is flagged as error in MySQL 5.1+, so WB can't reverse engineer that. 

At the moment, Workbench supports MySQL server syntax for version 5.1 and there are no plans to support 5.0 syntax.

You can workaround by removing the TYPE=MyISAM part from the SQL and fixing the compat errors you have in the other stored procedures. You can view the parts WB interprets as errors in the SQL Editor, errors will be marked with a red X next to the line number.

Looks like not a bug based on last comment (and assuming this is about 5.0 specific syntax used that is not supported in MySQL 5.1+ any more).
