Terminal Session IDs not sequential

When users connect to terminal sessions, the session ID that gets created is not in any sequence.
 For eg. if I'm first and only user on terminal server in the morning at the office, I should get a session ID of 1, but I would get something else, and consecutive users get assigned random IDs instead of sequential.

We've been having problems with very slow performance inside terminal sessions, event logs not leaving any kind of errors, so we are looking into these anamolies.

Can someone tell why the session IDs are genrated in such a way and if there is a way to fix it?

Thank you!

Found the following " Non console terminal server sessions begin at the number one and increment dynamically to the physical limit of the terminal server, or the maximum number of sessions limit defined in the terminal server configuration"

Found this to be viable answer to my problems, real problem was network congestion, therefore I was trying to close loose ends with the idea to discover the real culprit, but this isnt one of them.
