```This may come closer since it removes the zeros before comparison:

> x=c(1,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,3,4,4,4,
+ 0,0,0,0,0,0,1,2,2,2,2,2,0,3,3,0,4,4,0,0,0,0,0,0)
> x=array(x,dim=c(3,6,5))
> apply(x,3,function(.mat){
+    rows <- table(apply(.mat,1,function(z){
+        # remove the zeros
+        z <- z[z != 0]
+        if (length(z) == 0) return(NULL)
+        paste(z,collapse=' ')
+    }))
+    names(rows[which.max(rows)])
+ })
[1] "1"       "1 2 3"   "1 2 3 4" "1 2 3 4" "2 2 3 4"
