iPhoto has always been quite fast and reliable for me - until recently. Now the iPhoto window opens straightaway but I get the spinning beachball virtually every time at launch - for about 15 - 20 seconds. After that, all is normal.

I've repaired permissions, run all the routine maintenance scripts (with Onyx), and done a full rebuild of the iPhoto library 3 times, with no real improvement. I think the symptoms started shortly after upgrading to 10.6.7 (and Aperture 3.0.2) - but that may well be just a co-incidence.

Anyone having the same experience - or better still, able to suggest a cause/fix?

The iPhoto library is not especially big - about 12,500 pixs. And my external backup - still running 10.6.6 - is as fast as ever. But I've not added pixs I've imported to the MBP in recent days.
