The latest version of Fox isn't working for me.

1) First I installed the latest version of Fox, but not Foxedit. My  
invalid input redirection problem was unabated:

(a) When the edit form is called, the URL shows "...n=MyPage? 

(b) But when the form encounters invalid input, it displays an error  
message and gives the user a chance to correct the error. However, the  
URL now shows "...n=MyForm" and nothing else after it. Pressing cancel  
leaves the user on the form. Pressing enter causes the form to be the  
target of the update.

2) Then I tried installing the latest version of Foxedit as well, to  
see if that would fix the problem. That caused my form to simply  
return me to the target page when invalid input is submitted. No error  
message or chance to correct.

3) I then tried using Foxedit to edit an anchored section (using code  
that had previously worked). My old code didn't work now.

4) So I modified the code to make the form explicit:

{[foxedit #to_do_current 'Edit current' form=Edit.EditMessageForm]}

The above still brings up the EditSectionForm - not the form that I
