with the help of a computer and a little program it is a matter
of a few seconds to compute several hundred values of this
sequence.  I will not do it by hand, because this is error prone
and wastes my time. 

So I computed a(p*q*r*s) = 5712 for distinct primes p,q,r,s.

Now we have:
a(p), a(p*q), a(p*q*r), a(p*q*r*s) = 1, 2, 18, 5712
which looks like the beginning of sequence
Can you prove that there is any connection?

I agree that a(12) is, indeed, 3 (not 2), but I absolutely do not agree that a(n) is calculated "so easily". Try, please, find a recursion for it. Try, please, calculate by handy a(p*q*r*s). So I think that a(n) is very hard calculated (at least, till now).
