Form validation doesn't work

I'm trying to use the foswiki FormPlugin with partial success:

My first very simple form never executes the action; instead it always bounces back to the topic containing the form without giving any error.

The same form works properly (i.e.: gets to the action) if I set validate="off", but in this case I miss the validation. Moreover I have not the macro URLPARAM defined in the target topic.

I have a test form showing the problem here:

I believe the problem is simply that you left out the validate attribute in the %STARTFORM{}% tag. Note that it defaults to "off" so you'd need to include validate="on".
