ax.annotate in 1.4.2 behave different from 1.3.1

With the sample code below, in matplotlib 1.3.1, the Text are placed at top
which is like the docs said,
"/If a ‘points’ or ‘pixels’ option is specified, values will be added to the
bottom-left and if negative, values will be subtracted from the top-right/".
but in matplotlib 1.4.2, the Text showed at bottom.
Is it a bug here?

#sample code:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
fig = plt.figure(1, figsize=(8,5))
ax.annotate('somthing', (8, -8),
            xycoords='axes points', va="top", ha='left',
            size=10, color='r')
