- if the object has not objectclasses on add then you can probably just
  return an error, this will be done by the schema module later, but it
  make no sense to allow to create objects without objectclasses in
  sam.ldb (in an add operation you can't delete btw)

- on add you do not need to do the operation, then search, then modify.
  The objectclass module must clearly be the last one that manipulates 
  objectclasses, so on add you can just sort the classes and then do the
  operation as you already have all the classes from the original

- returning "Invalid search filter" in objectclass_search_self() may
  confuse the user as this is a modify/add operation (you should
  probably mention an internal error has occurred

Aside these minor issues it is a well done module.
