You might have to drain your cluster of jobs and shut down the qmaster 
but there is a file in your $SGE_ROOT/$SGE_CELL/common/jobseqno or 
similar that contains the current job ID to be used. I may have the file 
name wrong but if you poke around in that directory you'll find it.

There was a thread about this very recently on the list that you may be 
able to find via searching the archives.
