scale dependent visibility QGIS 2.8 dev

I am working on Windows 8.1, QGIS 2.8 installed
While setting the scale dependent visibility for a layer (in the layer properties) I realised that the maximum and minimum value have been inverted. This also occured under QGIS 2.6.
So, for example to see a layer from 1:1 to 1:5000 you have to set the maximum to 1:1 and the minimum to 1:5000. For my understanding it should be the other way around. Or is it done by purpose?
Thanks for taking this bug into consideration.

This is the correct behavior. A map scale of 1:1 is larger then a scale of 1:5000.
Map scale terminology is confusing at first, but remember that smaller scale = more zoomed out.
