I am unable to save stored procedures that are identified as having syntax errors.

On trying to save the stored procedure it informs me there is a syntax error with a popup, and asks if I want to continue and save. I choose to continue, but then rather than saving it tells me the scripts has no changes. It is then impossible to save the script.

It could be related, but it also renames the script by appending '_SYNTAX_ERROR' to the name. So if the script is called 'somescript' it gets automatically renamed to 'somescript_SYNTAX_ERROR'.

This is related to another bug:
In this bug I am told I have a syntax error and I don't. The engine is incorrectly identifying errors. i have just added another syntax error being incorrectly identified to this bug report.

How to repeat:

Create a script and save it.
edit the script and put a syntax error in it.
in my case this was with the line


now try and save this.

I have tried this on both Mac OSX and also Windows 7 64 bit.

How to repeat:

try to add a new SP:

CREATE PROCEDURE `new_procedure` ()



It, complains about syntax error but SP is created with new_procedure_SYNTAX_ERROR.. Upon refreshing SP is renamed to new_procedure.

Later, try to alter the SP - changes are not detected even after adding extra line of code.
