If you do setlocale("estonia") on a windows machine then json_encode outputs floats with commas which will cause a parse error in all browsers. It should output dots

Reproduce code:

Expected result:
{"float_test": 10.12345}

Actual result:
{"float_test": 10,12345}

Same problem here with setlocale("de"); and json_encode of a float.

This was fixed in 5.2.5.
