My D700 is about three year old and has never had any problems. The numbers which it gives to the individual photos had got up to about 9990. But today I noticed that the numbering had restarted at 0001, and as a result of photos taken today has got up to 0044. Is this supposed to happen? It doesn't sound right to me, as presumably it means that the first 999 numbers will become duplicated... and so on!
Any comments, please.

Congrats, you've just taken your 10,000th image.
That's all, and normally, there should not be any problems at all. The Nikon DSLRS have all that "limitation", they can only number 10,000 files and start again, which can mean anything from strictly 10,000 up to 20,000 if you use exactly 50 percent of RGB and 50 of sRGB, since the number vary.
Jetez un oeil à ma galerie if you feel like it! And it's a bit void as of now, but I also have a Nikonians blog
Auta i lomë! And my Nikon's only awaiting daylight...

James -- Indeed the camera is working like it was made to. Furthermore, you can change the 3-letter name given to files as well. I use that method to track which of my two bodies individual images came from. One body is labeled A## and the other is called B## (with # standing for sequential sets of 10,000 (actually 9,999) images. So A03_____ is the third set of 9,999. I figure there is little likelihood the cameras will last more than 99x9,999 clicks, now will I! I actually change the prefix at about 9900 so I don't accidentally run over.
