Default massive ceiling fan/light control THUMP through amplifier

I have a gainclone that I am running in my new house. The problem is that when I change speeds on my ceiling fan, there is a massive thump that comes through my speakers that is enough to make a person jump. I am afraid for my speakers, although it is not louder than music would be if I were to crank the volume. However, it is annoying and embarassing. How can I fix this problem (switching power outlets is not really an option in this room)??

This is quite a common problem with certain switches around the house. You could try looking at Nuuk's site for info:

My skin is not THAT thin. It really is a very loud thump/pop that I don't want to subject my speakers to repeatedly. The embarassment is secondary.
