GPS coordinate parsing

per request form the forum, I was trying to find the place where we parse user entered GPS coordinates (in order to be more liberal about a comma between latitude and longitude) but after 45 minutes I give up. It seems to me, this parsing just does not happen!

There is some regexp parsing in qthelper.cpp but that seems not to be called when I enter coordinates in the location manager. And in fact, I totally failed to failed to successfully (i.e. such that they are saved) enter coordinates in the location manager.

Am I missing something or is this just not implemented?
