Terrible title, but I'll try to explain with our specific problem.

We created a custom field named "Tester" and its format is "User". When somebody tests an issue that we've marked resolved, they set themselves as the tester.

This works very well for us because I can search for all the issues for which I am a tester. It fails though, when an employee leaves the company and we lock the user account. From that point on, any edits to the bug will reset our custom Tester field and make it empty.

We are currently using v2.4.2 or Redmine.

This was fixed in 2.5 while refectoring custom field formats. A test is added in r13722 to make sure that any user that was assigned to a custom field is proposed even if it was locked or removed from the project.
