/Volumes/SomePlace-1 <----Why?

We have run into a scripting issue when a volume has been ejected or 
unmounted, then re-mounted in Mac OS X. The re-mounted volume name path 
will have a -1 or -2, etc. appended to the end of path. This is 
problematic for scripting to automatically access files within the volume 
(using the previously known path). Only in Terminal can you see that the 
path is being altered by the OS. In the Finder, the user still sees the 
correct volume name without the appended numbers.

How can I remove these entries from /Volumes (other than reboot) so that 
re-mounting the drive/location renders the same path as when first 
mounted? Thanks in advance!
