Bug description:  Odd behavior adding negative numbers.

Ok guys.. I've looked everywhere and cannot find an explanation
for this behavior.  Could you guys explain it? :)

This script returns the same thing on 4.0.4p1 and 4.0.3p1.

/* Anything less than 3.2/-0.32 exhibits this behavior.  Anything above it doesn't */
$x = 0.1 * 3.2;
$y = -0.32;

$a = $x - $y;
$b = $x + $y;


I can increase the 3.2 and the -0.32 and the return is sane.. everything I've tried 
below 3.2 returns this oddity.
Output from above script..
0.32    -0.32

0.64    5.5511151231258E-17

Any clues?
