don't underestimate udev - AFAIK it is responsible for those names and it
fall recently to systemd, so that you can have more joy.

Thanks for the suggestion,
My kernel was not upgraded during the weekly upgrade - I compile it myself.  So I also suspect systemd.

In lilo my root partition was/is identified by UUID and also my other partitions are identified by UUID in /etc/fstab,  there is/was no problem mounting them .
Only the location of my boot-disk is identified by "ID" in lilo, seems it is not possible to do this by UUID in lilo.
Thinking of switching to grub2 to avoid these problems.

Best regards,
