Filed a bug report about this, its due to the iphoto 9.1.2 update. Simple to downgrade via time machine backups, if u have a backup before updating, simply restore the iphoto app in your applications folder, and all will be WELL!
The full screen fix is regarding the latest Developer Preview of Lion, it's now a native full screen app, like all others the full screen button is now located on the top right corner and it now works.
That may seem like an overkill indeed, but 10.6.7 did broke something in font department. That opentype problem has taken quite some time to fix. Seems that it was a complex and "deep" bug to hunt down. Good if they have found the culprit now. Thumbs up.
