With GE 6.2u4, is there a maximum job number, at which point GE will roll back over to job number 1?

We have some users who prefer to submit 10's of thousands of single quick jobs rather than a small number of array jobs with thousands of tasks. 

I'm trying to decide if there's any significant reason to force the users to use array jobs, aside from the fact that it makes the qstat output much nicer, like stop it or you are going to make parsing the accounting file a nightmare when the jobs roll over :-)
