Glad you got it fixed!
The second LBS obviously found the problem, but they must not have torqued the BB properly the first time around. In order to get a BB torqued properly, it's important for the threads to be cleaned and greased. I have found that clean, greased BB threads followed by proper torque is just about the only foolproof way to stop a ticking BB.
