I _think_ it's solved in Knoppix 5.0 because of udev calling the removal
script as soon as devices are being unplugged.

I had found no reliable way to do this with hotplug, in Knoppix
<= 4.0.2.

There should, however, be no reason why /dev/sda1 would suddenly "move"
to /dev/sdc1 in the old versions.
