Re: New x-10/CFL problem?
CFLs are notorious for not only spraying the powerline with noise, but also acting as X10 signal suckers. In general, X10 and CFLs dont play well together.
However, there are CFLs that are compatible with X10. Just google for "x10 compatible cfl".
They are more expensive than the cheap crap that is normally sold, and you probably will have to change out most if not all of the CFLs already installed, and if you have a lot of CFLs installed, there's no guarantee that taken all together they wont suck up your X10 signal.

You are probably experiencing the "undesired operation" part.
If someone refers to herself / himself as a "guru", they probably aren't.
