--- Comment #1 from alexxcons <acs82 at gmx.de> ---
The idea for the numbering renamer is to use a fixed number of digits, selected
by "number format". So actually the bug is, that 10000, etc. is used instead of
display an error :P.

Currently the max number of digits in "start with" is hard-coded to 4.

I can change the hard coded max number of digits up to 9 without getting fuzz (

... however I am not sure if this would be the best solution.
IMO instead the following should be changed:
- max number of digits in "start with" should depend on selected digits
- Add a number format for 5  digits: 00001, 00002, 00003, ...

Actually I dont want to add much more than a 5-digit format to the list, since
it only pollutes the list and probably nobody (except you) will ever use it.

I am surprised to see that the current options are not sufficient for you. What
is your use-case for starting with a number bigger than 9999 ?
