I tried to copy my "iPhoto Library" from my MacBook Pro to my Mac Pro and get this error:

The Finder can't complete the operation because some data in "iPhoto Library" can't be read or written. (Error code - 36)

I used Disk Utility to "Repair Disk Permissions". Also started iPhoto with the option and command keys pressed and selected various options shown there.

Oddly enough I can make a local copy on my MacBook Pro but I can't copy the original or the copy to my Mac Pro.

I am using iPhoto 2009 on OS X 10.6.2 with all available updates installed on both computers.

Mac Pro and MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
