If it was a bug then we would all be seeing the problem.

Thanks, petermac87. It seems that selection Faces in Contacts works for you.
So the questions is why this option is gone on my iMac, and what can be done to fix the problem?
It still could be a "conditional" bug, for example if this option is "killed" in Mavericks if one uses two iCloud accounts to sync contacts - like I do.
(Such a conditional bug did affect Mail.app in 10.8.x when using autocomplete for mail-to addresses.)

I did a clean install of 10.9.1, downloaded iPhoto newly from the App store, and copied my iPhoto library from the backup to the Pictures folder.
Unfortunatly, this did not help! I still can not use the Faces option of Contacts for selection a contact's picture.
There is a problem with my iPhoto library, that is not fixed by the "Repair" or "Rebuild" options of iPhoto??
Does anyone know a better explanation?
(OK, the next thing to do tomorrow is to create a fresh (small) iPhoto library and see if this will work.)
