esri.Map.setExtent mutates extent?

I have an extent that I want to use as a default so at any point I can call map.setExtent(defaultExt) but it appears that setExtent is mutating the value of defaultExt.

If I check the min/max values before and after the call to setExtent they are changed, has anyone else seen this?

It means that I effectively end up with moving goalposts, I suppose I'll have to clone my default extent and pass the clone to setExtent.
