Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at

Additional info:

From the MySQL manual:

A comment for a column can be specified with the COMMENT option. The comment is displayed by the SHOW CREATE TABLE and SHOW FULL COLUMNS statements. This option is operational as of MySQL 4.1. (It is allowed but ignored in earlier versions.)
