Bug report #12633

Incorrect area calculation

Using google hybrid layer, project CRS epsg 3857, enabled OTF projection, and polygon layer at same crs, project map tools set to non-planimetric.
When you use the 'i' info tool it defines the polygon layers area to approximately 3 time the real value.
If I change from none/planimetric to wgs 84 it returns and area of zero.

This worked correctly in previous versions but seems to be broken now.

Please advise this is very frustrating.
