    There is a "blank" or "empty" burst photo in my library. When I try to open or delete it, iPhoto crashes. I've tried rebuilding/repairing the iPhoto database, but that did not resolve the problem. Below is a screenshot. The version I am running is 1.3 (350.23.0). Thanks in advance!

    i've seen this before, with a friend's mac. not a great solution, but we wound up copying her entire contents (MINUS the damaged photo) to a folder on her desktop, then deleting the iphoto library file, and starting over...reimporting everything from that desktop folder. and all was well.

    2 caveats: she did not have albums, so that part was easy. and not sure about burst photos (whether they will copy to a folder, and copy back...intact). anyway, just an idea.
