This is so wrong

I can't believe this just happened. I've been playing with this char for days, training its stats. Already got 100+ int and wis, and was waiting for the spider silk golem to spawn so I could clone the scroll of change material and some ommel fluids I was saving. On one of my praying rutines I intended to switch my black diamond scimitar for an ukku steel short sword for Loricatus to harden to adamant (or try anyway). Here is were things went awfully wrong. I was on gloomy cave level 5 and I was hovering over the lake, and pressed E to change equipment. Then, I accidentally pressed E (belt slot) instead of F (right wield slot), resulting in immediate drowning. Apparently, even though I actually had not unequipped my belt of levitation yet, just choosing the belt slot automatically unequipped it before even accepting or choosing another belt.

This is so wrong I can't explain the level of frustration I have right now. I uploaded the most recent in-game screenshot I had so you can see what a nice character I lost due to this nonsense. I had orichalcum gear and perma invisibility, haste, esp and telecontrol, killed Elpuri, Ur-Khan and Golgor Dhan. Basically a perfect character lost in the most ridiculous way ever.

I'm pissed.

Welp. At least you can't fault the dev updates for this one.

Haha, yeah well, there was Oree's blood pools already to be honest.

Everyone remember, if you're levitating over water (or blood) through a belt of levitation and open the change equipment menu you're just one keystroke away from (your most frustrating) death (ever).

Seriously, though, is there a way to fix this? I still can't believe it. Or to missquote banana growers: "E + E = Death. I still don't believe it.".
