Coordinates issue in print composer

While I had set CRS to WGS 84 for my project I could have coordinates displayed as expected in print composer.
Then I changed project settings CRS to WGS 84 / UTM zone 33N as this is more appropriate for Norway region ... since that time coordinates in print composer displaying totally incorrect values.

sorry for late answer ...
I shouldn't use degrees/minutes with projected coordinates? Than only other option is use decimal values which are not useful for me at all :(
I am building hiking map based on OSM data so degrees/minutes coordinates are important for me. Than I can with GPS find my position on map easily.
Maybe this "issue" could be changed to "feature request"?

If you're wanting the grid in degrees/minutes, then you'll need to use geographic coordinates. To do this you'll need to set the projection for the GRID to WGS 84 (not the projected WGS 84 / UTM zone 33N CRS), or any other geographic CRS. The grid CRS can be set independently of the main map canvas' CRS, so you can leave your map in UTM zone 33 and just have the grid reprojected.
I'm closing this report, as what you're after is already implemented and there's no bug/missing feature here. But if you run into difficulties with the grid projection please open a question over at http://gis.stackexchange.com/ , I'll send screenshots/etc over there.
