Flowing Fount of Yak Knowledge

I'm trying to set up a Proxy Account under SQL Server Agent. I created an account called "test" then tried to add a domain account as a principle. So, I went to Principals, clicked Add and SQL Login under Principal type. A selection list came up and I selected my domain account "ourdomain\myaccount". The dialog accepted my entry, so I saved it (clicked "OK") and the new proxy definition (clicked "OK" again). However, when I opened the proxy definition again and looked at Principals, my domain account was gone!

I assume I'm doing something wrong but it's not clear what that would be. On the one hand, if the Principals dialog didn't like my domain account, I would have expected that I would *not* be able to click "OK" without correcting my error. OTOH, since it appeared to accept my entry and let me click "OK", I would *not* expect that it silently did not save my account under principals.

Any ideas out there?
