I was reluctant to make the change to allow search/replace to update date fields precisely because of the possibility of this sort of problem. Calibre was not designed to auto-convert between types and apparently the database calibre uses (SQLite) permits writing trash values into date fields. Sigh ...

The next release (0.8.64) will attempt to convert the string to a date in this case and some other cases that I found.
