There have been mixed reviews on Photosweeper - I have not personally used it and recommend one of two known programs for duplicate identification -
The face that your library is getting larger not smaller indicates that something is amiss
As to TM questions for detailed answers the TM forum is best - basically you launch TM, go to the time you want, select the iPhoto library, click restore and when ask if you wnat to keep both say yes and place the newly restored library in the location of your choice
See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1427 for instructions on TM

Will give that a try.
I would update my original post to say that the size of the iPhoto library is actually going down as it should with all my deleting.

So I started to restore the old iPhoto library from time machine (135G). And now it's been "preparing to copy" for a couple of hours. Does it take that long for Time Machine to get ready?
