There will be a message in the sitemap.log indicating the validation 
error. In addition, the info is available as request attribute (so dump 
all request attributes on your page and you'll see).

Besides, you should consider to move to cocoon forms aka Woody or at 
least use the database actions from the modular package. Their interface
is a lot more consistent and have more docs.
