light flashes when switched off

We have a ceiling light which has started to flash every 15 seconds or so when switched off. It has a low wattage bulb and has never been any trouble before. We have tried replacing the wall switch, but this has not helped. Any ideas?

It becomes a detective game. Try to turn the circuit breaker off, serving this circuit. If it stays off, then double check for shorts at accessable points in the cirucit (switch, light fixture itself, attic, etc)
