Problem of the Fortnight #5

No Dim Bulbs Here

The circuit shown consists of three identical lamps and two ideal inductor coils (having zero resistance) connected to a battery with ideal wires. You should be able to convince yourself that after the switch has been closed for a while the lamps will be equally bright. The switch is now opened. What are the relative brightnesses of the lamps immediately afterward?
