      Description

      when creating a column family with column metadata containing a date, there is a server crash that will prevent startup.

      To recreate from the cli:

      create keyspace test;
      use test;
      create column family foo
        with column_type = 'Standard'
        and comparator = 'CompositeType(LongType,DateType)'
        and default_validation_class = 'UTF8Type'
        and key_validation_class = 'UTF8Type'
        and column_metadata = [ 
          { column_name : '1234:1350695443433', validation_class : BooleanType} 
        ];
      

      Produces this error in the logs:
