A friend of mine has a similar problem, and of yet I haven’t figured out what went wrong – so I might try some of your suggestions.
As a workaround, we used Image Capture (“Digitale Bilder”) to import the images – which usually works and allows the pictures to be imported into iPhoto as well (and does it flawlessly).

Hmpf. My wife returned from Namibia, I plug in the camera, iPhoto crashes again. I remove the two videos in the MP_ROOT/101ANV01 directory and restart iPhoto. Still crashes.
rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.iPhoto ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iPhoto.plist
Now logout and login again. iPhoto starts. But you need to say yes to the map and you need to Alt-start iPhoto to pick your library file (since I don’t use the default location).
Stupid camera. Stupid iPhoto.
