version_compare_numeric does not work for 2.2.9 to 2.2.10
version_compare_numeric correctly compares 2.2.8 to 2.2.9 and thinks 2.2.9 is an upgrade - good.
But comparing 2.2.9 to 2.2.10 it thinks 2.2.10 is an earlier version than 2.2.9 - not good.
The same problem exists for any last number position in the dot-separated list - e.g. 3.9 to 3.10 will not be seen as an upgrade.
I would like to use this an related functions to compare package versions also. Package versions often transition from (0.9 to 0.10) (1.1.9 to 1.1.10) (1.1.19 to 1.1.20). So it would be nice to fix the function.
