"Don't Import Selected Duplicates" fails to recognize duplicates when image numbering rolls over. To reproduce:

1. Take pictures so that your camera rolls over (my camera recently rolled over from IMG_9999 to IMG_0001).
2. Import pictures, leaving the images on the card after import.
3. Take more photos.
4. Import again and be sure "Don't Import Suspected Duplicates". Lightroom will not recognize any photo from IMG_0001 on as a duplicate even if it is.

This is obviously a minor issue as it will not come up often but it seemed worth reporting.
