Do Fluorescent Fixtures Really Need a Ground?

Electrical - A/C & D/C - DoItYourself.com Community Forums - www.doityourself.com
It is pretty much canon here that if a fluorescent fixture has trouble starting it may be a faulty ground but if you look closely that seems to be questionable logic.

Ground is not for function. It is for safety. It seems odd a device would need something not intended for function. It seems odd that fluorescent fixtures existed and worked long before grounding was common. It seems odd that CFLs seem to work fine in ungrounded fixtures. It seems odd that fluorescent table lamps usually don't have a grounded plug.
