begining to sound like you have gremlins in that CRUK if you find very many more probs with wiring I would think about replacing it since your in the build process anyways .............

Have you tried scrubbing the inside of the light socket with steel wool? JB

The lighting problems I've had have always been because of a bad ground.

Did you use a multimeter to see if you even have voltage at the wires? Before replacing sockets, you should use the meter. If you don't have one, buy a cheapo from Radio Shack. Those couple bucks will save you tons of time and money in the long run.
