I am suffering a Windows specific bug in WB...
This is my example table:

CREATE TABLE `t_nullErrorTest` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `test1` mediumtext NOT NULL,
  `test2` varchar(255) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`),
  UNIQUE KEY `id_UNIQUE` (`id`)

Open with "Alter table", then klick the column one by one. The default 'NULL' for test2 disappears.

This works perfectly fine with Linux version of WB.

How to repeat:
* create a table with default values
* alter table
* click columns

-> defaults values disappear

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.3.7 release, and here's the changelog entry:

On Windows, the "DEFAULT NULL" value could unintentionally be removed from
the "Alter Table" window when clicking on it.

Thank you for the bug report.
