I am facing issues with round() API of PHP 5.3.2 compiled for octeon platform.

The following one line script throws the following error:

"Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in <fileName>"

echo round(12);

With gdb, I noticed that its doing an infinite loop inside 
"static Bigint * mult(Bigint *a, Bigint *b)"  in Zend/zend_strtod.c

It works fine with PHP 5.2.3 compiled for octeon platform.
I don't see any difference in function definition between these 2 releases.

Is it a known issue or any patch available?
Please let me know if I need to provide more information.

I had a problem like this with php 5.3.2. but on freebsd 7.2...

Not a problem of max_execution_time but with the round() function, 

echo round((5.5/100),3);
// gives : 0.0550000000000000002775557561563 <== I specified and expected 3 floats, and no 30 !
I have tested it on different PHP versions and OS, and others worked fine.
echo round((5.5/100),3);
// gives : 0.055

Finally, the error was in my php.ini, "precision" was setted to 30.
I change it to 14 , as usually.
Now, it works fine.
It was my responsability.... but this comportement of round() is very surprising and I suppose this could help to understand a problem of max_execution of time if your "precision" is very large.

I tested to raise progressively the "precision" to 100000 and even if I cannot obtain an error like "max_execution_time exceeded", pages were more and more long to charge until I obtain this error : "Balloc() allocation exceeds list boundary".
Before, the max of floats I obtained is 57 : 0.055000000000000000277555756156289135105907917022705078125.

I don't know if we could talk about a bug for this comportment of PHP, but it seems very important to let the directive "precision" to 14...
