This is only going to bite people installing from one USB stick to another.  USB-connected drives wouldn't be affected, because they report an actual serial number from the disk; it's just USB sticks that often do not, since they are cheap.  I may be missing the correct scenario here, but it appears what you are describing is not likely to happen.

I know. I was only testing the speed of my usb stick with hammer and
I discovered the bug. My steps are only a example :)

Some users install the operating systems in usb disks and they will
have this problem. No only a bootable OS like in the usb images, I mean
people with a real systems (tens of GB) in usb disks.

SATA, IDE and SCSI disks have a unique identifier, the serial number.
The USB disks need also a unique identifier.
