Flurescent lamps ?

A lighting designer is a person who helps you designing the right 
lighting for your new home, etc. She does not necessarily know anything 
about electricity, but supposedly knows the best place to install 
spotlights, etc., to make a dramatic difference to your rooms.

Te other day, a lady lighting designer, whom we happen to know slightly, 
claimed that experience had taught her not to put a regular incandescent 
lamp and one of these new fluorescent replacement lamps on the same 
circuit, even if these is no dimmer controlling that circuit, because 
the fluorescent bulb will often die instantly.

Has anyone ever heard of this ?
If it is true (I haven't tried it yet), is there any valid explanation 
for this phenomenon ?
