10.5: A Time Machine - iPhoto Library restore heads-up System 10.5
If you need to restore your iPhoto Library from a Time Machine backup, make sure that you first disable any screen savers which access your iPhoto pictures!

Pretty obvious, really, but the Desktop & Screen Savers System Preferences panel makes it so easy to point to an iPhoto album -- and restoring an iPhoto Library usually takes time, which allows the screen saver to kick in. If the screen saver is active while restoring, however, the screen saver will either recreate a missing file in a partially-restored iPhoto Library, or cause an access conflict which will prevent the Time Machine restore from completing successfully.

Isn't this a BUG ? It should be reported to Apple...
