A workaround for an iPhoto/set desktop bug
Authored by: pwsloss on Jan 13, '12 09:10:17AM

The problem -- evidenced by the delay in iPhoto appearing -- may be that the utility has to scan and index all the photos in the iPhoto library. If you have a huge collection, that can take considerable time. The list of iPhoto albums and events takes a while to show up in Lion, too.

I've given it _hours_ before (opened System Preferences, let it sit there while doing other work), and it never showed. But click over to Screen Saver, and it shows up within a couple of minutes.
