Sharepoint Designer 2010 error

All of a sudden I was not able to open Intranet DEV site with Sharepoint Designer 2010. It was giving error "The Server could not complete your request" and in the eventlog the error was:
Log Name: Application Source: System.ServiceModel Date: 1/24/2012 2:16:34 PM Event ID: 3 Task Category: WebHost Level: Error Keywords: Classic User: XXX Computer: XXX Description: WebHost failed to process a request.

The solution was according to this post. In web.config just under the line: add the following line: after iisreset I was able to open a site.

update: there might be similar symptoms in case of low memory conditions. -the solution is obvoisly to add RAM.
