Have been having this problem for several months now. Thought sealing rubber on edges has gaps that caused water infiltrating inside bulb's compartment. Bought aquarium-safe silicone, closed gaps and still have same problem. Was thinking water comes through bulb's socket:

I wanted to use white enamel paintspray on this rusty connector, but had to ask if doing so represents risk for the health of goldfish.

I have no idea about fixing the leak, however I would be very concerned about the rust if there is any chance of water that goes in the tank touching it. Rust can mean very bad news for your fish :(

Toxins that are within rust is the issue here? Would covering it with enamel aerosol spraypaint be hazardous for fishies?

If you do this make sure you let it dry utill you dont smell anything at all. then it should be safe
