I am failing to see the problem. Perhaps all you need to do is to
change the form to

(:fox myform template=MyTemplate target={$EditTarget} redirect=1 :)

{$EditTarget} is provided by FoxEdit. Any abort from submission
resulting from an invalid input determined by foxcheck will
take you back to the calling page automatically, and not leave you on
the form page. This improvements have been added to FoxEdit with the
last update 2008-03-29.
