comment Motion sensing light triggered by fan on the same circuit
I think I may try the simplest approach and buy a different fixture to see if that resolves the problem; easier and cheaper than running a new circuit or installing an expensive line filter. FYI, there isn't an issue when the fan comes on, or while it's running: the light comes on inappropriately only when the fan clicks off.

comment Motion sensing light triggered by fan on the same circuit
I can give that a try. If the light functions normally when receiving power from another circuit, is there a way to isolate the fan or the light from each other on the same circuit?

@Tester101 No, it's a ducted fan that's inside the walls of the building. The light is outside. They are on the same wall of the building (light outside, fan inside), but I doubt if this is a vibration or motion sensing issue. I think it's electrical in nature (interference, voltage spikes, etc.), although I could be wrong.
