I've had similar experiences when sync'ing stuff to Flickr. I find that it tends to get better once you let it do it's thing. Eventually the syncing subsides and the images won't be marked pending any more.
I have to say that it's a bit frustrating though and I almost cringe when I accidentally click on a Flickr album and see the sync icon start spinning. I haven't tested this but I believe you can change the sync settings in preferences to manual instead of automatic. This might help - but then you'd have another issue of having to manage your albums more.
You have to be careful when you Force Quit iPhoto during the sync freeze though, as I've done the same and ended up corrupting my iPhoto database and iPhoto couldn't open my picture library. Of course I hadn't done a recent backup so I had to download an app to recover the library for me.
