    Description

      This is a problem because this field can accept timestamps.
       
      Reproduction steps:

      1. Create a course.
      2. Visit the course.
      3. Click on 'Grades' on the left.
      4. Click on the 'Setup' tab.
      5. Edit the category for your course by clicking 'Edit' next to the course name and then 'Edit settings'.
      6. Under 'Category total' click 'Show more...'.
      7. Check the 'Hidden' checkbox.
      8. Set 'Hidden until' to 'Enable'.
      9. Click 'Save changes'.
      10. Re-edit the category.
      11. Under 'Category total' click 'Show more...'.
      12. Notice the 'Hidden until' is disabled.

      So the current problem is the field is just ignored.

      MDL-49202 fixes this so that field is not ignored but then the following error occurs.
