Global search indexing stopped working on learn.moodle.org

      As discovered by marycooch, some learn.moodle.org scheduled tasks stopped working today (including essential ones such as automatic course approval).

      This was debugged to be caused by fatal failure of Global search indexing
      (\core\task\search_index_task) task:

      Execute scheduled task: Global search indexing (core\task\search_index_task)
      Processing area: Chat - activity information
        No new documents to index.
      Processing area: Course custom fields

      which then somehow blocks all other jobs from processing.

      We have had no custom course fields defined and there was no known change performed around the time this started to happen. The site had been restarted a hour earlier but the task did successfully run after that.
