Now it's become clear that when I got tightness/stiffness in the back of the knee, it was just a manifestation of swelling in the knee joint capsule. And when it was significant enough, it would cause some odd effects down the upper calf that mimicked a muscle strain. Oh, and your clicking in the knee would be consistent with this explanation--it would suggest a cartilage issue that could throw off a little swelling.
To test this theory, try aggressively treating the knee for swelling (ice, elevation) and see if your calf doesn't miraculously feel better.
