Try the following:
1 - go to the System/MobileMe preference pane and log out of MMe.
2 - login with a bogus username and password like "test" and "test". This clears the caches.
3 - login with your correct username and password.
4 - launch iPhoto and try again.
Next, backup the library and try the two fixes below in order as needed:
Delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder.
NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding the the Option key. You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.
Launch iPhoto with the Command+Option keys depressed and follow the instructions to rebuild the library. Select options #1, #2 and #6.
HI Old Toad.
I'm having a bit of the same problem. I'm just battling to follow your instructions here. Well, following them is fine, but how do I restore my photos, events and albums after deleting the com.apple.iPhoto.plist and the rebuild.
When going iPhoto/File/Browse Backups been taken to the Time Machine the iPhoto Backups there are empty.
