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.
