Ticket #1478 (closed patch: fixed)
Coordinate Capture plugin - fixes and enhancements

|Must Fix for Release:||No||Awaiting user input:||no|
I have found the Coordinate Capture tool very useful, but have found the following deficiencies:
1. the projection selector does not show the currently selected CRS. This is because a call that ultimately goes to QgsGenericProjectionSelector::setSelectedEpsg(), which doesn't do anything.
2. very sluggish update of the coordinate displays during mouse move. This is caused by creating the destination CRS object from a PROJ4 text string in the mouse movement handler. It is not necessary to build it on mouse movement.
3. three places to right of decimal point is not useful for long/lat - should be at least 4 places (approximately 1 second precision)
Here is a summary of the patch provided.
I have changed the overall handling of the user selected CRS to use QGIS internal CRS IDs. This allows use of user defined CRS, which seems to be why the PROJ4 text string was used.
The destination CRS object is constructed when a CRS is chosen. This object is used in the mouse movement handler. Now the update of the display is much faster, and with lower CPU utilization.
Also, the source CRS is updated via SIGNAL/SLOT when the project CRS is changed.
The number of places to the right of the decimal in the coordinate boxes have 3 (if units are meters or feet) or 8 (if units is degrees). This gives up to 9-10 digits of precision, which is well more than is normally necessary.
