Given that point lighting was causing the problem, it's clear that some nearby light source was to blame. 

1. Were you under or near some fixed ambient source, like a streetlamp or club spotlight? Was the effect less when you moved? 

2. Was someone nearby with a badly set up facelight?

3. Are you wearing face and/or body lights? Are they set ridiculously high in value or radius? If you don't use point lighting, you really should remove them, because you could be playing havoc with other people's view of their avatar and surroundings. Turning off point lighting might solve it for you, but anyone wanting to see light sources will have to deal with it in their own way (derendering you, derending the lights, moving away from you).

Many people wear lights and aren't even aware that they do, let alone the problems they cause. Some hair, and even clothes designers, add them to attachments with no regard for the problems they can cause. I recently saw someone with 10 light sources attached to their av... more than SL's graphic engine is capable of rendering. 

Go somewhere dark & empty and switch point-lighting on... does the surrounding area suddenly glow as if floodlit?Check attachments worn... anything labelled facelight or bodylight should be removed or at least checked to see how powerful it is. Hit CTRL-ALT-t to highlight transparent objects, and look for little spheres or bars hanging in front of your face (hit CTRL-ALT-t again to un-highlight). Check the menu options of hair for lighting controls; a responsible builder will have scripted a way to turn them off.

Labels are like rocks: you can use them to navigate, or you can wreck yourself on them.

Some people have facelights that look simply garish with advanced graphics enabled, even though they are not so bad without it.  Wearing a bad one wash out the avatar and everyone else around it.  Good builds look *much* nicer with full advanced graphics, but I constantly have to turn off local lights either because of those ugly facelights or because of poor lighting design in the build.  There are facelights available that do a fine job but you have to look around for them.

The main issue I have with this new version of Firestorm is that when changing an outfit it takes AGES to rebake the new layers.  Sometimes it doesn't change them at all until I relog.
