Hmm. Based on the responses so far, I think the best option would be a combination of:

1) Amend fstab to include /dev/sdb1 as well, so that mounting from the command line is easy.

2) Write a script which will unmount /dev/sda1, remove the USB module from the kernel and reload it... thus effectively 'rebooting' the USB storage system and ensuring that any USB memory mounted subsequently is /dev/sda1 again. That will ensure that I can still mount from the Fluxbox menu, if I'm too lazy to open an xterm. Heh. :)

Not necessarily the most elegant solution, but if it works without breaking anything, that's good enough for me.

Many thanks for all responses.
