Bug reference:      16010
Logged by:          Stephen Kendall
Email address:      (redacted)
PostgreSQL version: 12beta3
Operating system:   MacOS
Description:        

Expected output is a list of tables where the names contain simple date
strings that fall within a range. Actual result is an error because one or
more table names that do not contain validly formatted dates are passed to
TO_TIMESTAMP(). This should not happen because the table with the invalid
date in its name is in a schema that should be filtered out by a WHERE
clause before the evaluation of the TO_TIMESTAMP().

All but the first query shown below actually work in our production
environment (Amazon RDS 10.6). They don't error there and do return the
expected list of tables. However, that environment is too complex and too
full of proprietary data; I can not provide reproduction steps for it.

In any event, I believe that either the first query after the CREATE TABLE
statements should work because I think TO_TIMESTAMP() should *not* be run
against rows that fail the first WHERE clause predicate. That query errors
in both environments.
