Correct. It's a known issue with the lastest builds. Workaround: drag the photos from the email to the iPhoto icon on the dock. Then report the bug to Apple
iPhoto menu -> Provide iPhoto Feedback
The more folks that do, the better the chances of a fix.

This is a bug in Mt. Lion, see:
As a work-around: Ctrl-click the photo attachments and send them to iPhoto with "Open with > other > iPhoto" instead of "Export to iPhoto" or drag them to the iPhoto icon in the Dock or to the Desktop.
Send feedback to Apple.
