Check/Fiddle with the front brake, I have a feeling even though it's clicking you might have enough pressure to set off the switch. See if that works...

Even though you still hear the clicking, the switch could still be stuck. Pull the connector off the brake light switch, front then rear, and see if that helps at all.
