Correct:  if you don't save, the next session begins with whatever the 
last saved ID was.

I have an app I've been working on here off and on for a couple years 
which uses two dataGrids, and the ID count is up to about half a 
million.   As we get more change orders we'll keep working with it, 
increasing the ID count by the thousands every time we do.

I can imagine some projects where it may be possible to exceed the 
limit.  No many, but some.
