I'm trying to import OSM data with the new importer, but I get a problem: the bounding box has to be specified in 4326. In the normal case, an user loads an OSM background in 3857, or his data in the respective SRS. In these case, we get an error:

Error downloading
- server replied: Bad Request

better always reproject the bounding box chosen by the user in 4326.

The source of this bus is correctly identified in the comments on the duplicate Bug #9103. The OSM overpass-api requires the co-ordinates in Decimal Degrees, while the feature sends the co-ordinates in the current co-ordinate system used in the project.

The bug can be eliminated in day-to-day use by switching the canvas co-ordinates to Decimal Degrees. The OSM layer then operates correctly.
