Can't get Philips Hue Dimmer Switch power button to work properly with Hue bulb and HA

I’m using HA 2023.1.2 with Zigbee2MQTT and a Sonoff USB 3.0 Dongle Plus. I have a Philips Hue Dimmer Switch and a Philips Hue bulb on the Zigbee network and I’m using a Node Red automation to control the button presses on the remote to control the bulb.

I don’t have a Hue hub, so I have a very simple automation that says when the power button on the remote is pushed, call the light.toggle service of the light.

The issue is that the light will go on/off for a brief instant, and then revert back to its original state. This only happens the first time I push the button. If I press it a 2nd time, it works properly. My wife approval factor has plummeted as a result!

I tried changing the automation to something other than light.toggle. I made one that says "if light is on, call light.turn_off - if light is off, call light.turn_on’. I get the same behavior!

Anybody know what’s going on?

To toggle a light, you don’t need an automation.
Just a simple lovelace button with the toggle command will do.
