I can't reproduce it under RH 6.2.  Generally the fix isn't supposed to do anything 
(since arg is a double, 10 should be converted to a double automatically), but the fix 
can't hurt anything so if it works around a compiler bug, it's fine.

PHP cannot use sprintf() because sprintf() works with C types with predefined types 
for the arguments, whether PHP has its own types, and autoconverts arguments to match 
the format string.

This bug is in 4.0.5RC2 too, just confirmed it

produces '0.0:' instead of '0.10'

I'm really curious as to why PHP just doesn't use libc's sprintf().

./configure --with-oracle=/usr/local/oracle/product/8.1.7 
  --with-oci8=/usr/local/oracle/product/8.1.7 --enable-force-cgi-redirect 
  --enable-track-vars --with-posix --enable-sockets --enable-sigchild 

gcc version 2.95.2 19991024 (release)

This is not exactly a fix...
