I have come across this previously but I never had the energy to report it.
The problem is that there exist a bug in Vector[row] when n>10.

For example run the below code:

restart:
with(LinearAlgebra):
a1 := Vector[row]([seq(w[i], i = 1 .. 5)]);
a2 := Vector[column]([seq(w[i], i = 1 .. 5)]);

a3 := Vector[row]([seq(w[i], i = 1 .. 20)]);
a4 := Vector[column]([seq(w[i], i = 1 .. 20)]);

Let say you have a revolver with six chambers. There are two bullets in the gun. The bullets are
located in two chambers next to each other. You now want to play Russian roulette. You spin
the barrel so that you don’t know where the bullets are and then pull the trigger. We assume
that you don’t kill yourself with this first attempt. Now assuming that you want to maximize
the chance of not killing yourself is it...
