I am running Quantum GIS 1.8.0 on a 64-bit Windows platform. I've imported a data set that plots correctly when overlaid with a Google Satellite map, so I know that the layer/project CRS is okay (since my points are being projected correctly). The issue is that when I hover my cursor over any point on the map, the reported coordinates are entirely different from the coordinates used for plotting the points. How do I fix this or where can I get information on how to resolve this? I've checked the QGIS bug repository, searched this forum, and reviewed the User Guide.
plotted point: -76.83617103 39.21012998
map coordinates at mouse cursor position (same point as above): -8553363.45 4751815.77
