As of plugin_installer 1.2.1 (qgis 1.7.3) invalid repository urls are not signaled to user, although there seems to be code meant to do that.
For invalid I mean urls pointing to HTML, for example, as it was the case in a development snapshot of qgis listing "http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins" as an official repository url.

See #4621 for the effects of such feedback lack (confusion...)
