I checked bug 731866. The problem is that we are using 
PMA_mysql_field_type(), which returns 'blob' when field type
is 'text'.

libraries/build_dump.lib.php3 is the only place we use

In fact, in phpMyAdmin we always avoided using mysql_field_type(),
because of this problem.

See in tbl_change.php3, how we set $is_blob, with "SHOW FIELDS FROM...".
We are using "SHOW FIELDS" in a lot of places.

So maybe remove PMA_mysql_field_type() and do a generic 
PMA_get_field_type() which does not use mysql_field_type().
