Adding an objectClass attribute doesn't work (ITS#2469)

A "modify" request which adds a new structural objectclass to an object
results in the error message "structural object class modification from 'person'
to 'pilotPerson' not allowed".
This is very unfortunate, because removing and re-adding that object with the
additional object class works perfectly.
Example: Given the folliwing LDIF file:
[ more attributes ]
inserting the line
and feeding the file to ldapmodify results in the above error. Deleting and
re-adding the identical object works.
This is a major problem because remove-and-add leaves a window where the object
is unavailable. It's even worse if the object in question is a subtree.
