I've upgraded to 1.2 on two machines and every day or so they both get
another Growl notification that a "newer version is available" and I
should click to download...

-- - I've tried checking and unchecking "Check for updates
automatically". Doesn't help!

-- - I've tried reinstalling 1.2 over the current installed 1.2 to no
avail.

-- - I've looked for duplicate Growl.prefPane in /Library/
PreferencePanes (found it!), in ~/Library/PreferencePanes (no such
folder), AND in /System/PreferencePanes (Growl.prefPane not present).

Short of uninstalling and then re-installing on both machines what is
going on here?!? It's getting annoying! Was all working fine until
1.2...

Interesting.

Please try this:

http://bitbucket.org/boredzo/application-locator/downloads/

In that app, type in “com.growl.growlhelperapp” and press enter, and
let us know where it takes you.

Has this been resolved?

Please post the instructions to stop this distracting, persistent upgrade notice.

I am running Growl 1.2.2 on OS X Lion.

On a guess, I've opened System Preferences->Growl->Applications

Select Growl, the application. Uncheck "enabled"
After a restart of Growl, one time I did see this box return to
checked. So I suggest the additional step:

Select Growl. Click Configure... and then Notifications.

Select "Growl update available" from the list. Uncheck "Enabled".

Let's see how that works.
