iPhoto in second user account causes fan to go on

I have a second user account that I use to help a friend manage their iCloud stuff, PhotoStream, etc. I noticed that if I use iPhoto in the second user account, the fan goes on and Activity Monitor shows the CPU >100%.
iPhoto in my main account does not do this.
The only difference is iPhoto in the other account is registered to my friend's PhotoStream.There are no pending photos that are being added to the PhotoStream.
I've quit iPhoto and logged off the user, but the same thing still happens.
Why would this occur?
Thanks!

Could be a lot of things. Let it run for a long while, it may be doing indexing, building the Faces database, the Places database or any number of really processor intense tasks that it only needs to go through once and then it'll be done.
