Default Market updates show in all my Google accounts

After a recent Market app update, my phone now associates all of the V's stock apps with all three Google accounts I use. When there's an update available, I have three icons at the top of the screen instead of just one. And when I go to each account to see which apps they are, it's always the same stock apps in all three accounts.

Any advice on getting those stock apps unassociated with the two "other" Google accounts? I need to use all three for email, but only use my primary account for maps, YouTube, etc.

Try going to your Google account and changing it. Also go to menu/settings/ accounts & sync./manage accounts, and check your settings.

Sync options under menu/settings/ accounts & sync./manage accounts are:

Books
Docs
Contacts
Google Reader
Gmail
Web albums
Calendar

Nothing about Market.

I don't see anything in my online Google Account preferences that might relate to Market.

Market app settings and accounts don't seem to have any options that would help.

Any other ideas?

Does the same thing for me on CM7. I have yet to find a way around it. It also defaults the first account alphabetically (and that is not the account I use for my market).

For all I know, this may be what causes this clearly broken behavior. (Just speculating here …)

I used to clear the Market app’s data when it would get out of sync (apps would show up in the »updatable« list when actually there weren’t any new versions). At some point several weeks ago, I started seeing the behavior the OP described, on both Vs in my family.

Fortunately, it’s just a minor annoyance. I use two Google accounts on each phone: one explicitly created for each phone (to hold all phone-specific information, this includes the market account) and one shared between the phones to hold the family’s contacts.

I just make sure never to use the shared account for market-related activities. I’ve never even accepted that this account can be accessed by the market app.
