Given a(n) = a(n) = \prod_{i = 1}^{n - 1} gcd(i, n) (A051190) it is obvious
that a(n) = 1 only if n is 1 or a prime.
For many OEIS entries Charles has given a heuristic for growth, though not
for this one. It seems to be a decent fraction of n! for composite n.
Of course this doesn't rule out that there might be some larger n such that
a(n) = n.
Thoughts, anyone?
