OT:Clicky switches and maybe microphonic guitar...

Upon arrival in Italy for my recent gig, I noticed at the soundcheck that the guitars onboard switches are clicking in the audio... something else had changed too, cant quite say if the guitar had become a bit microphonic, but there seems to be something, just not quite right.

Now it could be that something happened on the journey, but more likely its my installation of a Deusenberger Multibender. When I took off the old bridge, the cable for earthing the stuff to the fingers was just a loose thing hanging out and touching vaguely the old bridge, I installed the new bridge and did the same thing, but.. is that normal? And could dodgy shielding cause a switch to "click" in the audio path?
