Check if iPhoto does indeed create a new AlbumData.xml. My iPhoto started creating ApertureData.xml and leaving the AlbumData.xml which iTunes needs untouched.
Still no solution here!

So glad to have seen this. I've been having this issue for a while, and also getting weird pics in my iDevices that aren't really in the events I've synced (or aren't anymore).
I'll deleted and then let iPhoto recrete the AlbumData.xml file and relaunched everything. No dice. I looked at the file with BBEdit, and found all the weird events in there (Events named by the date). I'd bet this is a problem with Photostream since it names events based on dates. Interestingly, the erroneous events appear more than once in the AlbumData.xml file.
I deleted out the erroneous ones (search for the string "AlbumName", and delete from the open to close <dict> tag), saved, and then opened iTunes (but not iPhoto as I figured it would overwrite the newly cleaned file. Strangely enough, the events were still there.
I'm stumped...Apple, please fix this!

OK, I tried something else, and it worked - or so it seemed.
I noticed 'events' that were the names of some slideshows and old folders. I deleted all of these out (including Recovered Photos). Most had 0 photos in them, so it wasn't a big deal. I emptied the trash, restarted, quit, and then checked AlbumData.xml...no weird events listed!
Then I fired up iTunes, went to my iPad's Photo screen, and found all the weird events still there. The only thing that changed is that they're now all grouped together at the top instead of being interspersed. That's progress and slightly less annoying, but still not solved.

I wonder if this was fixed. I too have the same problem.
I just noticed that if iphoto is open, the event list is incorrect on itunes. But if iphoto is closed, it automatically updated and the correct list shows up on itunes. I wonder some one else also saw the same thing.

I also have the same problem and like the last person was wondering if it was ever fixed?

I'm still experiencing this behaviour. I have 5 versions of an event called 4 feb 2013. When synced to iphone they have random, deleted photos in them. These photos are not in my library. Not that I can find. There are other dated events that are erroneous too.

See the post by Old Toad over here:
He references using iPhoto Library Manager to create a fresh library. I did it, worked perfectly.
