This was a bug with the UI.  The settings for the buildgroup were getting
updated correctly, but the UI failed to show what the email setting was for
each buildgroup.

Here's the commit where this was fixed:

If you're using a git checkout, you can do:
git cherry-pick 5ab9fb4d

If you extract a zip/tarball to install CDash, you can download this commit
as a patch here:
Then use the patch command to apply it and run gulp as above.

HTH!  Let us know if it doesn't work for you.
