How are you creating the new_categoryMember fragment?  If you pass it a
default category, it should maintain that value when it refreshes:
<% Jifty->web->region(
       name => 'new',
       path => '/admin/fragments/categoryMembers/new_categoryMember',
       defaults => { category => $category },
   ) %>

What do you mean by 'pass this back up'?  The onclick method that you
define below says that when the submit button is clicked, you submit the
Create action, refresh the current fragment (which is the
new_categoryMember) and add a new fragment to the end of the <dl> in the
parent element.
  You're not actually refreshing the whole list, so I'm a little
confused by the question.
  Does that help any?
