Syncrepl fails to update an entry if the objectClass was replaced
with a new set of values that explicitly lists a superior that
was only implicitly present in the old entry.

I have only seen this during the present phase of replication, so
I don't know if it can happen during persistent update as well.
It probably worked for me in the persistent phase as the entire
entry was deleted and added again there.

The patch at the end always uses replace instead of delete/add
of the objectClass values.  Is this OK Howard?  Or is it
necessary to perform further analysis of which values to
