yes, it was the problem. I did adapt Fox to this change by adding a
special markup to load a fox form from another page, rather than using
(:include <source>:) to use (:foxform <source>:)

But first when upgrading PmWiki some Fox forms may stop working,
and I forgot this particular problem. When people ask for help
the fact that a Fox form is included via (:include ...:) is often

Rather than setting  $EnableUndefinedTemplateVars = 1;
I encourage to use (:foxform <source>:)
