How the heck do we add new attributes to existing object?

For example, I have a custom LDAP objectclass:

m-oid=1.1.1.1.1.1...
  m-must: uid
  m-may: role
  m-may: cn
  m-may: sn

Then I added some records of the above object into the server... and then I decided to add 2 new attributes to the existing objectclass...

m-oid=1.1.1.1.1.1...
  m-must: uid
  m-may: role
  m-may: cn
  m-may: sn
  m-may: newone
  m-may: newtwo

For some weird reason, it let me add newone but it won't let me add newtwo, yet both of them are just octet string with their own unique m-oid.

What is the proper way to add new attributes to existing object? and what happen to existing records?

I am using Apache Directory Studio. Don't have ldapmodify or stuff like that.
