Summary0005006: faulty sogo-tool restore results in white screen error 501 on login

We switched from SOGo version 2.3.23 to version 4.3.0.
For that we made a complete backup with sogo-tool on the 2.3.23 machine, copied that backup to the new 4.3.0 machine and made a sogo-tool restore.

This was processed without errors.
Afterwards some users can log in successfully, but can only see a white screen or error 501 (depending on used browser).
In sogo.log we see an 501 error about PreventInvitationsWhitelist.
When checking that for "affectedUser" with
/usr/sbin/sogo-tool user-preferences get settings affectedUser Calendar
we get
Calendar: {"PreventInvitationsWhitelist": "", "PreventInvitations": 0, "View": "weekview"}

As you can see PreventInvitationsWhitelist is stored as empty String, but is defined as array.
Fix is to set it to an array with:
/usr/sbin/sogo-tool user-preferences set settings affectedUser Calendar '{"Calendar":{"PreventInvitations":0,"PreventInvitationsWhitelist":{},"View":"weekview"}}'

I checked all affected users.
They all are very old, which means they were migrated from SOGo version 1 to SOGo version 2 to SOGo version 4.
In their backup file that wrong setting was stored as empty String.
And sogo-tool V4 imported it as empty String without giving any error.
But it also did backup it again without error as empty String!

sogo-tool should either convert that empty String to an empty array on restore, or should give an error on setting, backup and restore.

Steps To Reproduce

1) change setting PreventInvitationsWhitelist to empty String with
/usr/sbin/sogo-tool user-preferences set settings affectedUser Calendar '{"Calendar":{"PreventInvitations":0,"PreventInvitationsWhitelist":"","View":"weekview"}}'
=> You do not get an error!!!

2) make a backup with sogo-tool
/usr/sbin/sogo-tool backup /tmp affectedUser
=> You do not get an error!!!
In that backup PreventInvitationsWhitelist is set to "".

3) restore that affectedUser
/usr/sbin/sogo-tool restore -p /tmp affectedUser
=> You do not get an error!!!
And the setting is not corrected either.
