A couple of months ago, I lost a Javazon to NM ancients - Korlic was fire enchanted, and I didn't even think about the FE bug (at least, I'm pretty sure that's what got me). I lost a good pair of Titans, some sweet rare gloves, and my only HC Stone of Jordan. I had to take a little break from Diablo 2 after that one. Although your answer to the poll might be situational - based on character level, items lost, mental fortitude, etc. - I'm curious what others do when they lose a Hardcore character.
