Someone else reported this in Bugzilla a while back and it got resolved 
WORKSFORME because nobody could reproduce it, and has 
never in the entire history of Bugzilla ever created a primary key on 
that table.

If it's a defect in mysqldump, that would explain a lot.  If you can 
track sown said bug, let's reopen it.  We probably need to make examine the current indexes and be prepared to drop either 
one, depending on which it ended up with.
