Bug description:  Decrement Operator

I believe there is a problem with the decrement operator.

$percentchange = .30;
while ($percentchange > -1){
  $percentchange -= .01;
  echo $percentchange;

zero is returned as -1.422473250301E-16 and 0.01 is returned as 0.0099999999999999. 
This seems incorrect to me.
