I figured that out last night during my first game. ONly one handed
weapons used in two hands. I don't know if being light has anything
to do with it, though.

The quote from the PHB (on page 119) states that: "when you deal
damage with a weapon that you are wielding two-handed, you add one and
one half times your Strength bonus." It further states you don't get
this bonus with Light weapons. So, whether the weapon is a two-handed
weapon or not is irrelevant.
