Unfortunately I think your data is gone in that case :(  I just tried
that (on purpose) and can't find the data anywhere.

I take a slightly different approach with the latest set of changes by
Carsten.  My remember templates use the %!%& escapes to file in the
target location immediately and jump there - so I'm working in the org
file and not a remember buffer which has no file store.

Here's a sample template for reference:

(setq (org-remember-templates (quote (("todo" 116 "* TODO %!%&%?
  %a" "~/git/org/todo.org" "Tasks")))))

This way I can use the Emacs session recovery to restore the data.
