Yes, that part works fine on its own even on my machine. But when the code
passed to AppleScript includes 'tell application “GrowlHelperApp”’, then the
code will not execute unless the app is present — there’s a precompilation step
where, presumably, AppleScript determines that the target application supports
the listed commands.
