Steps to reproduce:

I see two options to fix this:

1. We don't allow changing the user when the time entry is logged on a locked user.
2. We add the locked user to the list of users.

I think the second option is better because the limitation suggested in option 1 may confuse users. In my opinion, there is no reason to disallow changing the user when the user of the time entry is locked.

Here is the fix for the second option, but I would like a double check on the solution. The second patch renames and reorders the test added in #32959.
