Is anyone else experiencing constant start up crashes with iPhoto 11?

Going through the error report, it's the same process that crashes:

This was the same issue that caused Chrome to keep crashing.

I have no idea what is causing libobjc.A.dylib to bug out like this.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I am not going to reinstall ML.

Repair your hard drive with Disk Utility. I had issues with iPhoto and that fixed it.

In Terminal, run

Code:
sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force
then reboot.

The same problem affects other apps like Google Chrome, Evernote and TextWrangler.
