Knoppix 4.02CD usb-storage hotplug problem/bug

I am trying to fix/workaround a bug in knoppix 4.02CD.  

I plug a usb-storage device, it gets added to the desktop as
/dev/sda1.  I mount it to /mount/data.  I plug a second usb-storage
device.  It gets added to the desktop as /dev/sdb1, but /dev/sda1
moves to /dev/sdc1.  I now have /dev/sdb1 and /dev/sdc1, but the
/mount/data still points to /dev/sda1 which doesn't exist anymore.
The problem seems to be in /sbin/hotplug-knoppix which does some
hard-to-understand contortions.

Any ideas on how to fix this?  

For now, I've just been always unmounting and removing the first
usb-storage device before plugging the second one, and then
replugging/remounting the first one again, but that is kind of gross.
Seems like there ought to be an easier/more attractive way.
