Using ESRI JSAPI Search dijit with lat/lon coordinates

The documentation for this widget suggests the "value" could be "a string, geometry, suggest candidate object, or an array of [latitude,longitude]."

 

Using it though, if I enter the lat/lon string "45.4215,-75.6972", I am taken to the coast of Antartica. If I enter "-75.6972,45.4215", I am taken to Ottawa, Ontario...which is where I expected "45.4215,-75.6972" to take me.

 

I get that it is interpreting the values provided as x,y (and if I provided web mercator coordinates, this would be fine) but don't people usually give lat,lon coordinates in that order (that is, y/x)? Should I expect to be able to provide lat,lon?

 

Am I crazy or should I be contacting ESRI Support about a possible bug here...?
