Let us consider the example from Maple help to ?ProbabilityFunction (also see ?Geometric)

with(Statistics):
ProbabilityFunction(Geometric(1/3), 5);
                              32 /729
                             

Let us continue the investigation

ProbabilityFunction(Geometric(1/3), 5.1);
0.4215152817e-1
ProbabilityFunction(Geometric(1/3), 5.12);
0.4181109090e-1
ProbabilityFunction(Geometric(1/3), 51/10)
(32/2187)*2^(1/10)*3^(9/10)

whereas the result 0 is expected in all the three cases up to Wiki. I am aware of the line

"t-algebraic; point (assumed to be an integer)"

in the help. However, 

ProbabilityFunction(Geometric(1/3), -.5);
                               0

The same issue with the DiscreteUniform distribution. This bug lasts from  at least Maple 16. The question arises: may we trust Maple?
