Bug in Det[ ], once more

In Mathematica 3.0 


gives the result 1 instead of 0.
It probably holds for all Modulus equal to other primes grater or equal
to Prime[4793] and for all matrices with some equal rows.

I need this type of computations and I waste a lot of time on this bug.
I cannot find any help in Wolfram documents.

Is there any patch or other possibility to correct this bug? (
Mod[Det[m],p] is really no help )
