Opening Word file from SharePoint 2010 causes Office to crash

Today I wasn’t able to open a Word file from the SharePoint Server. Every time I opened the document from the server, Word crashed. Saving the file to disk and opening it then worked just fine. What made it even worse was that SharePoint thought the file was opened exclusive for my user account and I couldn’t do any action on the file on the server e.g. deleting. Bugs! I don’t like them, but it’s always a good feeling when you found out how to get rid of ‘em.
