Problem 672. Longest run of consecutive numbers

Given a vector a, find the number(s) that is/are repeated consecutively most often. For example, if you have

a = [1 2 2 2 1 3 2 1 4 5 1]

The answer would be 2, because it shows up three consecutive times.

If your vector is a row vector, your output should be a row vector. If your input is a column vector, your output should be a column vector. You can assume there are no Inf or NaN in the input. Super (albeit non-scored) bonus points if you get a solution that works with these, though.
