You need to debug this separately:
set debug=w800 in mh.private.ini or use custom logging code to see whether
W800 actually got the motion sensor calls for which you say the light did
not turn on (I think it does)
Then if you establish that it is the X10 power relay piece that is not
working, trying having code that reads the W800 code and resends the X10
command 5 times over the power line to see if that helps.
But either way, you want to separate W800 and X10 power line to see where
your problem really is, and focus on that. My guess is that mh cannot
reliably send X10 power line commands to your switch due to lack of phase
