Another crude hack to set issue number.

~mailman/bin/config_list -o tempfile listname

edit tempfile and add:

next_digest_number = nnn  # (where nnn = your next issue number)

~mailman/bin/config_list -i tempfile listname

It will bitch about restoring a non-std value, but it will keep the issue
number you added.
