Good point! - No, I did not thought about that.
So just checked this:

cat /proc/partitions | grep "[0-9]$" | wc 
- result is 12

ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid/ | wc
- result is 12 too

Thinking a bit closer to my way of backup and restore - it could not have 
happened. I used tar with --one-file-system for backup and -p on restore,
which should not touch the uuid or label of a filesystem.

kind regards
