ballast factor and lamp life

John Pitney asked:
Also, do high-ballast-factor ballasts (ones that draw more watts to
burn the bulbs a bit brighter) shorten the life of the bulbs 

According to my notes from an efficient lighting seminar, fluorescent
lamp life may be reduced with ballast factors greater than 1.18.
