Failed To Load SharePoint Designer Workflow

A client ask me to help troubleshoot one of their workflows.  The problem was an inconsistent issue; sometimes it worked, and sometimes it did not.  So I jumped on to my SPD 2007 to take a look at their workflow.  I could not see anything obvious in the workflow, logs and error reports.  It was getting late, so I called it a night.  The next morning I logged back into my SPD 2007 to see if I missed something on the workflow when I received the following error.

It worked last night, what has changed?  Well the client had recently set up a second web front end (WFE), and a network load balance (NLB) piece of hardware.  I had read through a couple of posts...
And while reading the second post, it hit me to check the web.config on the WFEs to make sure that they are identical. It turned out that I was missing an authorizedType Assembly in one of the web.config files.  After adding the line back in, all was happy again.
