PC Death

How do you guys handle character death?

In one of the games I play in right now, the DM is worried that PC deaths are going to cause the party to become unbalanced. IE, Fred the Fighter dies, and everyone takes his spiffy magic items, and Fred II The Fighter comes in with a whole new set of magic items. Thoughts?
