I found some strange behaviour while casting a float to integer. It looks like something gets rounded in a strange way while casting.

Reproduce code:
	$fltTest = 9.95;

	print ($fltTest * 100) . '<BR>';
	print round($fltTest * 100) . '<BR>';
	print (int)($fltTest * 100) . '<BR>';

Expected result:

Actual result:

Floating point values have a limited precision. Hence a value might 
not have the same string representation after any processing. That also
includes writing a floating point value in your script and directly 
printing it without any mathematical operations.
