I don't see why the load being lighting would have anything to do with it. If the breaker trips immediately check for a fault from neutral to ground. Beyond that, it may be possible that one or more drivers has some leakage to ground.

First I would check for things like pinched wires, but it could be the lights. How many lights are there? Do the lights have any L-G or N-G filter caps in their power supply?
