Absolutely. I've written just one test script with just those 2 lines in it.  I copied 
this same file to 3 servers now - the 2 that I've already mentioned plus another 
FreeBSD server (identical in hardware and OS config to the other) running 4.03PL1.  
The only one of these servers that prints out 2147483647 is the FreeBSD server running 
4.06 (also did it with 4.05).  The other 2 servers print out 5000000000.  I also 
remember another location in my site that was affected by this bug, and I can 
GUARANTEE that it did not occur on the affected server until I updated it to 4.05. 
Please change the status of this bug report back to open.

are you sure you don't initialize the variable with 5 Million on the Linux box?

If this is strictly hardware related, then how come when I run the exact same 2 lines 
on another box running linux, I get the correct 5 billion number displayed?  The linux 
box is using an AMD 450 Mhz K6, and the FreeBSD box is using a Pentium 3-600.  I am 
not able to back up to 4.03PL1 on the FreeBSD box, but I am quite sure that this 
problem did not occur back when it was loaded.

1) longlong != double
2) the scale is HW-dependant, i. e. you need a 64-bit HW to get native support for 
64-bit numbers. that's how it's always been in PHP. there was no change WIRT this.

5,000,000,000 is clearly more than your HW can take, so it's clipped to the closest 
possible value.

I've verified that this behavior is relatively new. It does not happen in 4.03PL1, but 
does in 4.05 and 4.06.
