Just tried all of the steps that you did (after backing up my files), it appears that it must have had something to do with your iphoto program. Have you tried securing empty trash, it will probably help, as this could probably help in some sort of way. Don't know how but that is what I did and it worked fine.

Thanks! I ended up finding a manual emtpy trash on another forum... you enter, sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/*, into the terminal. I had never used terminal before and it said using sudo commands can be dangerous but it worked for me!
