This behaviour has already been documented, including the reference to the socket(2) 
man page.

Read your local man page on socket(2). Most of the functions in the sockets extension 
return >= 0 on success and < 0 on error.

Reclassified as a documentation problem.

Docs writers: feel free to bug me on the semantics of the functions in the module and 
such :)

Something like

if ( ($iSockFD = socket (AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM,0) ) != 0) {
        print "Call to socket() failed: reason: " . strerror ($iSockFD) . "n";

That results in an "Unknown error 4294967293" message from strerror() in Linux kernel 
2.2.16.. A "Unknown error: -3" in FreeBSD 4.0  -- no matter what user I am, this error 
occurs on both operating systems..
