What does the projection capture selection button do?
The only effect it seems to have is:
a) if set a geographic coordinate system (any), lat/long are shown in that field
b) if set to a project coordinate system, the same values as in the unprojected field
below are shown
c) if the same projection as the map is chosen, an error occurs.

Are you sure the layer CRS is properly declared and reprojection on the fly is enabled? Why not to set the project CRS to match the layer CRS?
a) Because geographic CS work in lat/long?
b) This is the unprojected field, unless you set it's projection. The field below shows the coordinates in the project CRS.
c) The map and the project CRS shoudn't differ. If they do, you need to enable on-the-fly reprojection.
