setExtent: need to execute twice

We have a function for zooming to a saved extent that only works when executed a second time:

function setMapExtentESRI(xMin, yMin, xMax, yMax) {
var sr = new esri.SpatialReference({wkid: 1337}); /* where 1337 is a well-known ID */
var extent = new esri.geometry.Extent(xMin, yMin, xMax, yMax, sr); /*

The first time this exact code is executed, the map moves to the correct extent but disappears. The second time this code is executed with the same parameters, with no other code executing in the meantime, the map appears at that extent.

Running API version 2.5.  Tried 2.7 with the same results.
