Comment (by johnbillion):

 In [changeset:"40566"]:
 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="40566"
 When asserting microtime output as a number, make it a number

 microtime is by default a string. Doing a greater then or less than check
 of that string is a bad idea since it uses the first part (the micro part
 of microtime) rather then the actual time. This adds a helper to convert
 microtime output into a float which we can then use to properly compare
 the output of microtime.

 This fixes an intermittent test failure.

 See #30336

 Merges [30337] to the 4.0 branch.
