Question about Leviton COMBINATION SINGLE POLE TOGGLE SWITCH
Clarify: One switch controls 2 outdoor lights.
One turns on-off with switch.
Other stays ON all the time.
If this is not what you mean, then add a comment.
Might have a nail in a wire.
This is absolute fire hazard.
Notify contractor, call electrician.
We used to do siding, and put nails in water pipes and AC tubes.
Problem would probably be located near light that stays ON.

You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.
With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.
You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.
Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

You cannot replace the switch with a switch/receptacle combo because there is no neutral wire. The black and white that you see are both used as hot wires. One is the Line and the other is the Load.
You have to install another 2 wire cable or replace the existing with a 3-wire cable. A 3-wire cable has a black, red, and white, plus the bare ground wire

You are looking for a 2-circuit 4 position rotary switch, sometimes called a canopy switch. These still made by Leviton available at grandbrass.com and the same type of switch is made by Raco, their part number 6357 which is available through Ace Hardware.
The sequence of these switches are generally low, medium and high. This is achieved by dividing the number of bulbs into two groups. For your five-bulb fixture, it could likely be a group of two and a group of 3 bulbs. The switch has four positions: off, on (2 bulbs), on (3 bulbs), on (2+3 bulbs)

If the product is as pictured, (two single pole switches in the space of a single switch), then it probably has 4 terminal screws (in addition to the ground). Look closely at the terminals on one side of the switch. If two terminal screws are brass colored and two are silver colored, look on the brass colored side. There is probably a strip of metal that connects the two terminals together - this is what is keeping your light "on". You need to move one of these wires to the other side of the switch. I assume the other switch operates OK and you only have 3 wires (besides the ground).
On the other hand, if you have a total of 4 wires, then one of the wires is probably for powering something else (an outlet, or even another switch that is not supposed to be controlled by this switch). You will probably find that other device is currently being controlled by this switch. You will have to swap two wires, but without more info I can't tell you which ones.

SOURCE: I installed the PR180 switch
There is nothing wrong with the switch or your wiring. The Leviton R01-PR180-1LI is not designed to work with flourescent lights. A lot of electronic controls will bleed through a small voltage when in the "OFF" state. It's just enough voltage to make the ballast in the flourescent light try to fire but not enough to let it fire the way it is supposed too.
What you need is a motion switch that is rated for flourescent lights, such as this :-( :

Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.
Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.
