mapwindow5 shows very well units in decimal degrees when I am using WGS84 in the south hemisfere, but when I use DD MM SS (settings) the transformation has errors. Please, review that. Example:
International Airport Mariscal Sucre, Tababela, Ecuador, the north end of the runway, has a latitude - 0.105 degrees = (- 00d 06m 18s). If you change in the projection settings to seconds, the mark show (-01d 53m 42s) it is the complement but not the real coordinate.

Could you share your shapefile (with one shape is enough) and the prj file so we can investigate further?
