Hi Old Toad,
I did the suggested and no, the problem doesn't occur! .. but the new library has very few pics.. Should I put more and see?
I went back to the default library and the problem is still there
EDIT: I'm merging the old library with the new one using iPhoto Library Manager app. I hope this does the trick!

That was just a test. Next we would run some repair routines on your original library but since it corrected itself there's no need to. The problem may have been a damaged preference file and creating a new library may have fixed it.

Whenever I use iPhoto, as soon as I go to another program and come back it takes me to "Last import" folder regardless of where I was.
Another user suggested the following:
Go to your Pictures Folder and find the iPhoto Library there. Right (or Control-) Click on the icon and select 'Show Package Contents'. A finder window will open with the Library exposed.
Look there for a Folder called 'Import' or 'Importing'.
Is there anything in it?

Using iPhoto Library Manager to Rebuild Your iPhoto Library
- Download iPhoto Library Manager and launch.
- Click on the Add Library button,
and select the library you want to add from those in the selection window.
- Now that the library is listed in the left hand pane of iPLM, click on your library and go to the Library ➙ Rebuild Library menu option
- In the next window name the new library and select the location you want it to be placed.
- Click on the Create button.
Note 1: This creates a new library based on the LIbraryData.xml file in the library and will recover Events, Albums, keywords, titles and comments. However, books, calendars, cards and slideshows will be lost.
Note 2: Your current library will be left untouched for further attempts at a fix if so desired.
If the new library doesn't work properly try this:
Starting over from scratch with new library
Start over with a new library and import the Originals (iPhoto 09 and earlier) or the Masters (iPhoto 11) folder from your original library as follows:
1. Open the library package like this.
2. Launch iPhoto with the Option key held down and, when asked, select the option to create a new library.
3. Drag the subfolders of the Originals (iPhoto 09 and earlier) or the Masters (iPhoto 11) folder from the open iPhoto Library package into the open iPhoto window a few at a time.
This will create a new library with the same Events (but not necessarily the same Event names) as the original library but will not keep the metadata, albums, books slideshows and other projects.
Note: your current library will be left untouched for further attempts at a fix if so desired.
In either case your current library will be untouched for further testing if necessary.
