I still get 362 people. Even after I wrote a little script to pad extra zeros in the less than "%04d" ID's True I no longer have the ~/.gramps directory from my old computer.
What I did is made a sorted list of all the ID's, and iterated through it. For each ID that was not in the "%04d" format I opened the gedcom file and replaced every instance with the next highest "%04d" formatted number. I now am back to 443 individuals :) Thanks for all the help, Ben
