No, not really...

it depends on how much convenience you need, or basically how often you 
mount/unmount the disk. Given Mac OS X mounting is Unix-style, you can 
control it much better than on Windows. Essentially, you should be able to 
use either symlinks or renaming of the volume to get it fixed every time it 
is mounted. This task can then be automated if you know enough about Unix 
(sorry, I don't know more than that it can be done this way).
