Every time I import photos with iPhoto, it crashes!

  1. I have no idea how to diagnose. I used cleanapp to remove all traces of iPhoto
  2. I just purchased http://www.fatcatsoftware.com/iplm/ to try rebuilding and importing photos, but no luck
  3. I have created and removed about 10 libraries, and still no luck
  4. It's always creating folders called "iPhoto Library Recovered Photos"

Every time I try to import it just crashes.

If you are using iPhoto '11 9.2, you are not alone. The upgrade to 9.2.1 this week fixed this for me.
