A thought: something may not be the same each time you remount the thumb drive, causing Amarok to think this is not the same drive as before and thus to reindex the thing.
2 things to try:
- create a symlink from, say, your desktop to the music content on the stick and define that as the location of your library in Amarok
- make a /etc/fstab entry for the thumb drive (using the entry in /dev/disk/by-uuid) with appropriate settings.

But maybe Amarok does this with all volumes that it recognises as removable? Do you (dis)connect it with Amarok running?
