I am experiencing order numbers being skipped.  From doing a bit of digging in the forums, it appears to be due to customers beginning the checkout process via PayPal or Google Checkout but not fully completing the process. 

Has anyone else experienced this?  Is there any type of fix?

I am seriously considering disabling both of these payment methods due to this problem.  Not having sequential order numbers will be a nightmare to deal with.

Yes, Magento reserves order ID before redirecting a customer to a payment gateway, so the numbers are not sequential.
As far a know there is no qick fix. 
With the Custom Order Numbers extension you can set the next order number, but not correct previous.
