Yes, that is correct and would stop the CFL from flashing (by shorting
together the 2 lamp wires when power is off) , but the problem is that
you cannot safely connect both the active and neutral directly to the
2 "throw" terminals of a standard Australian light switch, there is a
high risk of arc / breakdown between the 2 throw terminals, leading to
a short and/or a fire.
DONT DO IT.
As I said in another post, using a resistor in series with the neutral
to the throw terminal, or wall plate type neon insert (subject to its
breakdown voltage being lower than the CFL's "start" voltage
threshold) is the only safe way I can think of achieving a safe result
with this method.
the ideal solution would be for CFL makers to put a "bleed" resistor
across the filter cap. I doubt it will happen though.
Note - If trying this in any other electrical system, note that as
well as the insulation breakdown switch, if you use any type of "make
before break" switch, you would cop a dead short circuit across the
supply - check the switch first before applying power.
probably wouldn't trip an ELCB, but I wouldnt try wiring anything to
the earth except things that are meant to be earthed. at least it
would probably trip the ELCB if the switch insulation failed.
