That sounds encouraging!

I want to back off my statement before about the stability of the  
former GID before and after the change, as I've found some cases  
where it does change (which makes sense based on what you said).   
However, it always appears to be the case that the 'stable' nodes  
have a gid[1] field that is one greater than the 'unstable' node's gid 
[1] when this mismatch occurs.

Thanks for your assistance!
