Disappearing PRI from Key column after creating a trigger


I create a table on an empty database. Table is called Detail, has 4 columns with first one as a primary key:

I insert a single record and display column info:

There is PRI in KEY column of idDetail (as it should be). I then create a trigger on INSERT and display column info again:

No change, PRI is still where it should be. I then execute an update on a single and only row. Update should neither activate the trigger, nor actually change anything (since the value in the row is the same as in the update).
After update I display column info once again:

Suddenly PRI is missing from KEY column. I execute the very same update again and then show columns again.

PRI is back in the KEY column. If I then again execute update, PRI is gone, and then after another one is back. Same behaviour when I execute INSERT.

I then DROP the trigger, update the record and show columns again twice :

After the trigger is dropped, SHOW columns always correctly lists PRI in Key column for idDetail.
