Goal

Why does end-dating a segment combination of a category disable the category, but removing the end date does not enable it again? When the following steps are performed, the END_DATE_ACTIVE remains against a category, preventing further operations regarding this category until the end date is removed via SQL:
Enddate a minor category segment value.
Disable the category.
Enable the category.
Remove enddate from minor segment value.
Still cannot use the category due to error saying it has expired and END_DATE_ACTIVE remaining on FA_CATEGORIES_B for this category.
