Touch lamp + fluorescent bulb = :( ?

I have a standing touch lamp (the kind made of metal that you just touch anywhere to turn it on) that cycles through three grades of brightness and off as you touch it. A few days ago the three-way (incandescent 50w-100w-150w) bulb blew out when I turned on the lamp, and today I replaced it with an equivalent 3-way fluorescent bulb. Now the lamp doesn't respond to touch at all - it's just on at full brightness when plugged in. Is there something wrong with the lamp, or do these kinds of lamps just not work with fluorescent bulbs?
