Try setting the clamp direct/indirect render settings to 0, that might make it go away. Stochastic sampling of many lights can lead to very bright individual samples, and when those samples get clamped before added to a pixel, energy (light) is lost.

> In the attachments I’m showing the aforementioned issue, as you can see the source of lighting (in this case a simple Point lamp) decreases its intensity as the number lights increases. On every picture I’m adding one or more lamps.
