Without a lot of deep thought I surmised that there would be an equal distribution of digits in counting up from 1 ... but I discovered that, while that is the case it is not until 'n' gets VERY LARGE

For example: we get the correct number of digits of 1 at only n=199,981 and many more times as n increases.

However, digits 2 - 9 match much later ... 2 at 242,463,827; 3 at 371,599,983 (I haven't double checked these, though)
