Rebuilding thumbnail cache every time I launch iPhoto 11?

please tell me there is a way to stop this, I bought iLife 11 the day it was available for sale and upgraded the second I opened the package. I didn't have any preliminary issues like some initial users had and was very pleased.

Now every single time I open iPhoto I get the pop down that says "Rebuilding Thumbnail Cache" and it is crazy slow, I have tried using the "hold Command and Option down while starting iPhoto" and that does not seem to fix it when selecting check boxes.

I have also downloaded iPhoto Library Manager but haven't tried that since I don't want to create a new library, just want to fix the one I have!

does anyone have a workaround to avoid the rebuilding of cache or possibly one final method to rebuild and leave it alone? having to wait in excess of 45 minutes to open iPhoto is crazy.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out
