When sharing a report with a group, "Visible to" only displays group "name", regardless of whether another field has "Display" set to 'true'


When a user creates a custom field u_display_name on the sys_user_group, sets "Display" to "true", and shares a report with a group, initially the "Visible to" displays the u_display_name value, but upon saving, reverts to the "name" field (for which the base system has "Display" set to "true").

Steps to Reproduce

1. Go to the sys_user_group and set Display to true for any column other than Name.
2. Open a report. From the drop-down next to Save, select Sharing.
3. Choose Groups and users.
4. Pick a group. Notice that the Visible to field is populated with the display value.
5. Save the report and return to Sharing. Note that Visible to displays the group name and not the new display value.
