Just to elaborate - near the top of my data file (about 50 lines in), I find 

        <slot:value type="integer">559</slot:value>

559 is my most recently created invoice.   I think that GC pads the leading 
zeroes on automatically.

Make sure you take a backup copy of your data before hand editing the file, 
just in case
