geoprocessing environment - does not retain set processing extent

I am working through the virtual campus training module on surface analysis. I am trying to set the environment for running a geoprocessing tool to limit interpolation to a defined area.

The Processing Extent always defaults back to 'As Specified Below' rather than keeping the extent I've specified (Same as layer Boundary).  Even if I click ok and immediately reopen the Environment Settings it has reverted to the default.

How do I get the geoprocessing environment to respect the settings I have selected?
