Hi Marin,  I don't  think so.  All responses should be valid XML whether 
it is a response to an incorrect parameter or not.  The repository 
explorer is expecting a certain valid XML response even when it submits 
erroneous parameters.  If you would like, send the baseURL of your 
repository and I could take a quick look at the responses.

Kind regards,
