Arrrgh!

Even though I love Linux I have these moments when I think, just as I get somewhere I'm back to the start.
Having got to grips with most of the things I want from my system I now have several scripts set up so I can do things like run rsync backups and the like....
I'm a distro hopper so I usually have 3 different distros on my laptop, ( currently ubuntu studio, debian testing kde and now mint 14 xfce ) suddenly my scripts run into an error because the external drive I use always mounted as /media/drivepartition after a bit of head scratching I realised that the new distros were mounting it under /media/myusername/drivepartition !!!!!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

So do I change my scripts to this new setup meaning they wont run under debian testing kde, only run them using debian testing for now or do I edit my scripts so they work under both ????
I love a challenge and enjoy testing my scripting skills but I just wonder where this one came from and if the change will go through all distros??
