So yeah, PHP could have been better and nowadays it is much better than 3.x series, but if you look at the alternatives, you might appreciate it more.
P.S. You may say that C exhibit similar idiosyncratic behavior when floating point is involved. Sure - but floating point is pretty hard to do right in any language. This is well-known problem with similarly simple solution: use fixed point where you can floating point where you must and be extra careful if you do. In PHP it does not help you much...
