Is the GFCI a combination circuit breaker GFCI device, or a receptacle GFCI?

If it's a metal box, and a metal light fixture, and the box is grounded. The fixture itself may indeed be grounded via contact with the fixture box, and/or through the screws holding the fixture to the box. This is by no means an acceptable alternative to an actual properly designed grounding system in the fixture, but it may be enough if it's needed.

Is it a standard snap switch (on/off), or are you using a switch with some other functions (pilot light, timer, dimmer, etc.)?
