Indeed. Digging a little, I found out that I actually have Growl still
installed. I removed it, killed its process, and made sure through the
following AppleScript that it's not found:

tell application "System Events"
        set growlHelpers to the name of every process whose creator type 
contains "GRRR"
        if (count of growlHelpers) > 0 then
                set growlHelperApp to item 1 of growlHelpers
                set growlHelperApp to ""
        end if
end tell

I get an empty string as returned value. Is is the same for you?

But as I said before, I'm fine with removing Growl support, unless
someone objects.
