Description:
------------
Linux version 2.6.22-3-686 (Debian 2.6.22-6) (maks@debian.org) (gcc version 4.1.3 20071019 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-17)) #1 SMP Mon Nov 12 08:32:57 UTC 2007

PHP (PHP 5.2.5-2 with Suhosin-Patch 0.9.6.2 (cli) (built: Feb  1 2008 21:17:20)) returns a rather strange result for a certain mathematical expression. Also, the weird result is only returned in very specific cases:

php> = (0.005 + 0.002/3 + 0.194 + 0.001/3 )/2
0.0:
(notice the semicolon!)
php> = (0.004 + 0.002/3 + 0.195 + 0.001/3 )/2
0.1
php> = (0.005 + 0.194 + 0.002/3 + 0.001/3 )/2
0.1

When $result is the 'strange' result:
is_float($result) == true
is_float(0.0:) ==> syntax error

Needless to say the strange result is resulting in syntax-errors in the code where it occurs.

Reproduce code:
---------------
print (0.005 + 0.002/3 + 0.194 + 0.001/3 )/2

Expected result:
----------------
I'd expect:

0.1

Actual result:
--------------
I'm getting:

0.0:

(notice the ':')

I am also having this problem.  I'm using php version 5.2.4  To reproduce:

echo (0.08 / 0.8);
or
echo (0.04 / 0.4);

pretty much anything like this that should result in 0.1

You are really seeing "0.0:" with a colon at the end?  I don't see how that is possible and I certainly can't reproduce it.  Can you please try a current version without any non-php.net extensions and let us know if you still see it.
