I am in no sense an expert, but IMHO it never *hurts* to bump the 
version number.  (And it is *probably* necessary to do so in your 
circumstances.)  It is probably prudent to make a note in the Changelog 
(and it is also prudent to keep a Changelog!) to the effect "Version 
i.j-k never installed on CRAN".

But as I said, I am no expert.  Younger and wiser heads may chip in with 
advice that is more sound.
