Thanks.  I've updated my branch with what I hope will be a fix.  This
time I've modified a local DB to replicate your error condition, and
confirmed it all works.

However, it will only allow the instanceType to be changed, the
objectClass can't be fixed yet.  But if you can confirm what I have so
far works for you, I'll see what I can do about the rest.
