Variables are not set when a transformation is opened (due to "set environment variables" menu entry)

      Description

      This is a quirky one

      1. Create a transformation that uses a table input database connection, where you have ${HOST} say. Save to db repo and close it.
      2. Click edit, set environment variables. Specify a value for ${HOST}
      3. Re-open the transformation, edit the connection from the table input, hover over ${HOST} and you'll see it's not set.

      If you do the same for a new transformation you'll see ${HOST} is indeed set. Weird!

      If you preview or run the transformation, from that point onwards the variable does appear to be correctly set.
