I'm assuming you want this because the desktop icon disappears before
the device is properly unmounted (synced).  That is a well-known bug:

I believe this has been fixed upstream though, so as soon as 2.16 hits
Sid I'm expecting to not have the problem anymore.  If you're running
stable you'd probably have to wait a little longer though.

What you can do is tell udev to always create a link to a specific
device based on device specific information.  I think the following
might be of use:

Software is not manufactured, it is something you write and publish.
Keep Europe free from software patents, we do not want censorship
by patent law on written works.

It's important for a corporate leader to know the difference between
what is actually illegal, and what people assume should be illegal.
