(In reply to answer by Dej Mar)

The following is an interchange of rows with columns for Dej Mar's second presented solution. It's not the same as the first solution, so indeed there's a second solution, keeping MIXUP in a row, that's not a trivial variation of the first.


PMUIX
XUPMI
UPIXM
IXMPU
MIXUP


(A trivial variation would merely change the order of the rows, such as:

MIXUP
PMUIX
XUPMI
UPIXM
IXMPU
)
