QGIS3: jumping to geographic coordinates doesn't work

  1. I've loaded the OpenStreetMap layer via XYZ (EPSG:3857).
  2. In "Project Properties | General", I've chosen "Decimal degress" in "Coordinate display | Display coordinates using". => QGIS now shows geographic coordinates.
  3. When entering "7,51" in "Coordinate" on main window, it should pan to Germany.

But it doesn't. QGIS3 pans to the equator (0,0).
This bug appears at least in build d48818b492.

For the CRS guys: Are the decimal degrees based on WGS84 (ellipsoid) or spherical coordinates?
For the feature guys: Would be nice to select a different CRS in "Coordinate display" :)
