getCapabilities request performed by WMS provider isn't checked for exceptions. This makes it hard to debug servers...

Btw, WMS 1.3.0 exceptions look different from WFS 1.0.0 exceptions.
Here's an example:

[[ServiceExceptionReport]] version="1.3.0" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/ogc http://schemas.opengis.net/wms/1.3.0/exceptions_1_3_0.xsd">

msGetLabelSize(): [[TrueType]] Font error. Requested font (arial) not found.

Same happens for GetMap requests. In this case, qgis might instead ask for inline exceptions (in-image) when supported by server.
