# to be matrix(1:6,ncol=3).
# If we assign in the standard way, and specify submatrices of the same shape in
# indices and as the value of the assign (but leave some indices on the LHS empty),
# then it is possible that submatrices do not end up being assigned to in the way
# we might expect, because the RHS value is flattened and replicated.
# This is only a problem when the repeating index has a lower dim number (here 1)
# than the specified indices (here 2 and 3).
