Ok, I've found out why it was going wrong.

It seems that the first document in the book using chapnum has to have an 
override setting the chapnum to start at 1 (this document being the third in 
the book, after the cover and ToC).

It sounds like you've got two numbering systems going on. One uses <$Chapnum>, 
the other uses paragraph numbers instead.
You can influence the <$Chapnum> numbering with the Format-Document-Numbering 
dialog, tab 'Chapter'
You can influence the paragraph numbering with the Format-Document-Numbering 
dialog, tab 'Paragraph'.

Check the Numbering properties of the ChapTitle and the Heading1 paragraph 
tags. You should use the same numbering system in all para tags that have a 
paragraph number.
