Well it appears the CFLs do not have lagging power factor.
Looks like the current is nothing but pure phase distortion, meaning you cant correct the power factor with a capacitor like you can on a motor or welder, adding a capacitor just makes the power factor worse.
Only way I can see to fix this problem is to go with LEDs.
