Description:
------------
If you pass to base_convert a numeric string like "0.5", to have it converted 
from base 10 to base 16, PHP will interpret the input as decimal 5 and return 
hexadecimal 5.  I suspect that the problem lies internally in the logic of 
_php_math_basetozval.

Test script:
---------------
var_dump(base_convert("0.5",10,16));

Expected result:
----------------
I expected PHP to return a zero just as printf("%x","0.5") and dexhex() do.

Actual result:
--------------
5

_php_math_basetozval appears to be source of problem b/c while it mimics strtol, 
unlike strtol it fails to adequately deal with '.' being an illegal character. 
strtol disregards '.' and all subsequent input whereas _php_math_basetozval just 
skips the '.' and processes the next character.
