    Hi there, I have the same issue as 'lmatos' above. For some of my events iPhoto has creates 1000's of duplicate entries for Fethiye and OluDeniz. Perhaps serves me right for holidaying in Turkey. It has not done this for other events however. Has anyone cracked how to remove these duplicate entries from the DB? I did over a 1000 using the 'Stop' sign and it did not even make a dent in the number I have left to remove. Any pointers would be really appreciated.

    I think that I have found a solution:



    If you have 20 photos (for example) to locate in a new place in iPhoto, just select one photo of them, locate it. Then, select the 19 rest of photos and search for the place you've created and add them. That way it seem to be no multiplicity in locations.

    I have the same issue. But I am noticing that it involves places with foreign characters or accents in the names. Could it be that the bug is that Places has been implemented with just the basic English alphabet? When I rename a place, say "My First Home" to use only basic letters, no umlauts or accents and assign that place to multiple pictures it works fine and stays as one entry in "Manage My Places" But the ones that have 10, 20 or more duplicates all seem to involve characters like "ß" in Straße or something like that. Can you guys look at yours and let me know if you find this to be at the root of your issue as well? Thanks!
