sort($b,SORT_NATURAL);

Could you please elaborate on your
- Operating sustem
- configure line
- actual output

because on my 5.6.0RC3 on Ubuntu 12.04 I get exactly your expected result.
Should you be talking about the leading zeroes, the natsort() manual page says:

5.2.10	 Zero padded numeric strings (e.g., '00005') now essentially ignore the 0 padding.

and SORT_NATURAL references natsort()
