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 )


I can't provide much help, but you may be interested in the following:


   Modulus 48611
     is too large for this


Perhaps Det fails for the same reason Together fails above. At least
Together posted a message, and returned the problem without change.
