Hierarchical Folders Cause iPhoto Shutdown????

I have been having problems with iPhoto and have traced it to Hierarchical Folders. If I add a folder and place an album in it, then try to close iPhoto 5 and reopen the program hangs during the launch. Any ideas how I can fix this. If I rebuilt the library or repair permissions it will open one again, but after I close it and try to reopen the same problem occurs.

What can I do????? :confused: :mad:

Gone but not forgotten.
If you're not importing, but placing the photos yourself, that's most likely the issue.

Import the photos, letting it copy them and then, if you don't want the others anymore, delete them.
