Faces problems; intrinsic to iPhoto '11 or due to library upgrade from '09?

    Same issue here.


    I discovered that if you close iPhoto and delete the in your library file then restart iPhoto, & while in your unnamed faces album go to the top menu bar:- /photos/detect missing faces then


    the photo will disappear (presumably because it has no missing faces)


    an unnamed square will pop up, which can be deleted and then the photo disappears (because it now has no missing faces).


    So this seems to be a problem of corrupt indexing somehow?


    While this works it is a bit cumbersome on large Libraries. I wish there was a batch method of doing this.
