Re: Bad circuit breaker?
The only way a ground is going to trip the breaker is if the ground and the hot is connected to the same point. That could be a short in the light, however with the other problems you stated, I would have to suspect you have it wired wrong. For better help we need to know exactly what wires and how many you have in the box and to what you connected the ground.
