[Jon Ewing] "Sure enough, the lighbulb now moved along the path. But it was just the first frame moving."

what does that mean? do you mean it's not blinking? or it's not moving?

if you mean there's a problem with the loop then make sure that:
1. in the precomp, the length of the precomp is of the actual animation. for example on, off, then on again.
2. in the master comp, when you time remapping you need to create a keyframe one frame before the last keyframe, then you delete the last keyframe. this will make it loop properly (if in the precomp the first and last keyframes are the same).
3. in the master comp, stretch the out point of your precomp so it will continue on playing.

see if this helps:
