I've got a strange problem with iphoto08, one I haven't read about on the forums yet..

I have 9000 photo's in my library.
When I click on events it says:
2788 pictures in 126 events

but when I select the photos option (the one under events) it says:
8854 pictures in 409 events

Any one any idea on why and how the events tab doesn't display all the events/photo's, whereas the photo tab displays them all?


I've tried
- reimporting the library
- creating events from a random selection of photos, but the photo or event number in the event tab didn't increase
- deleting the library and the pref-files and reimporting a backup library

only solution I see is creating a blanc iphoto library and manually placing each event one-by-one into the iphoto08 library from a backup iphoto06 library.

But if anyone has an idea or solution?

except if iphoto hides them, no

or in other words: i didn't hide any photo.

I'll better check it though..


edit:
I selected all the photo's in the photos-tab, clicked on hide, and then unhide
so every photo is now (and was) visible
