Interesting problem, John.

Try this idea:

Say your present position is 1000.  You want to go to 1050.  and the
shortest route is clockwise.

Assume there are 65536 possible positions

1050 - 1000   is less than    65535 - 50.

Therefore,  subtract the present position from the desired postition, and
the desired position from the MAXIMUM number of positions.  the comparison
will give you the shortest route.
