Bathroom lights flicker before turning on

We just bought a new house and all three bathroom lights flicker before completely turning on. In some cases it is quick, but most of the time the flickering lasts 5-10 seconds. Two of the bathrooms have similar light fixtures, 8-inch round fluorescent lights, while the third bathroom has a light/fan combo also with a fluorescent buld (quad tube, 2-pin). I have replaced all bulbs, and my next step would be to replace the ballasts, but since this is occuring only in the bathrooms, I am wondering if it is a bigger issue than just the ballasts. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Have you checked the grounds at the fixtures?
