[Maxima] Expanion of vector expressions

Dear Maxima Users,
I came across a problem with vector simplification (using maxima 5.25.1, I have problems with maxima 5.26). For products of a scalar and a vector, it depends on the length of the scalar expression, if it is distributed over the vector or not.
E.g. with a 5 element denominator I get
And with a 6 element denominator I get
I found no way to expand such a vector*scalar expression, e.g. expand, vectorsimp with expandall:true don't work. This is especially inconvenient when I want to retrieve an element of the vector as in
Is there a way of doing this without writing my own function for this?
Thanks & best regards,
