Bug report #14319
master: coordinates of cursor in statusbar in WGS84 instead of project CRS

The coordinates of the cursor as shown in the statusbar are now always in the WGS84 (EPSG:4326) CRS. These used to be (in QGIS 2.12 and previous) in the project's CRS.
This is important as users use this to navigate the map based on known coordinates.
It only applies to the coordinates of the mouse position: if you switch view to 'extents' using the button on the side the coordinates are in the project's CRS.

I just noticed this issue yesterday.
I just compiled the latest master and it's still present in a project that I'm using.
Can some leftovers be in the xml file or the issue is present everywhere?
I have disabled OTF in the project settings and in Options/settings but I cannot get rid of the wrong WGS84 display.
