strtotime() returns -1 for dates in the format yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.fff  (where .fff represents the fraction of the second)

e.g. strtotime("2004-06-09 17:25:14.333") returns -1

[MSSQL via ODBC returns dates in this format.]

Reproduce code:
$sv = strtotime("2004-06-09 17:25:14.333");
echo $sv;

Expected result:

Actual result:

This is fixed for PHP 5, but will not be fixed in PHP 4.

OK, won't be fixed is fine, but the docs should be updated.  Took me a while to track this down as I believed the docs that GNU format was the rule.  GNU format allows the decimal seconds.

Yup the docs for this should be fixed too; but I'll do that after I fixed the code for PHP 5 ;-)
