I've got an intermittent issue with iPhoto (latest version) that I'm hoping someone's seen before.

 

I can launch iPhoto, and it runs fine. If I leave it running, though, it will crash, usually within 1-3 hours. This happens even though I'm away from my Mac, so I don't think it's anything I'm doing that's causing the problem.

 

I've got around 5,000 photos, and have tried repairing my Mac's permissions, repairing iPhoto permissions, and repairing the iPhoto database. (I haven't done a complete rebuild of the iPhoto database as I don't want to lose all my albums, slideshows, etc.).

 

I'm wondering if this issue has anything to do with either Time Machine or Photostream, as those are the only two things that aren't running all the time?

    I don't know if this will help diagnose what's going on, but I noticed that in all crash reports (as in the one above) it states that the Crashed Thread was 19.

     

    Because Thread 19 wasn't in the above post (I was told the first 50 lines were all that was needed), I thought I'd post the details of Thread 19. Here's hoping it means something to someone here:

    Well, since there've been no suggestions (other than to post the crash log) on how to resolve this issue, I'm hoping it will resolve itself when I transfer all of my current Mac's data/applications over to a new iMac that's supposed to arrive today.

     

    If the problem still exists after this transfer I will be able to contact AppleCare and see what they recommend.

     

    Thanks for looking, anyway.

    I set up my new iMac today, using Setup Assistant to move everything over from my Time Machine backup hard drive. At first, I thought this got rid of the issue with iPhoto crashing, but it didn't. 

     

    In the past, iPhoto would normally crash within an hour or two if it was left running, with no other action going on with the iMac.  Today, after moving everything over, it hadn't crashed in over 3 hours, and I thought the problem was gone....but, after coming back to the Mac later on, I see it did crash again.

     

    All crashes seem to point to the same thing (though I've no idea what the crash report means).  It crashes at Thread 19 each time.

     

    Any suggestions here?

    that looks like an OS issue but since moving to a totally new computer did not resolve it then that would not be it

     

    Maybe someone else will see the problem - I do not

    Larry,

     

    Thanks for taking the time to look at it.

     

    Here's hoping someone else will be able to suggest something.
