ArcPy: Set Output Processing Extent (Bug!)

I need some assistance to figure out if the following is a bug, if so what work around can I use. I've written a Python Script I need to change the Processing Extent for each feature layer being processed. I obtain the extent for each feature layer using the following Python code:

 

process_extent = arcpy.Describe(site_buffer).extent

 

If I print process_extent , the results are what I would expect:

process_extent.PNG

I then try to set the Processing Extent using the process_extent as input based on the following code:

 

arcpy.env.extent = process_extent

 

if I print arcpy.env.extent, the results are not what I would expect:
