COMMENTS

The irregular array of numbers is:
...k..3....4....5....6....7....8....9...10...11...12...13...14...15...16...17...18...19...20
.n
.2....4....4....6....6
.3....4....8...16...18...14....8...14
.4....4....8...20...36...44...24...40...16...84
.5....4....8...20...40...72...80...90...66..184...72..236...26
.6....4....8...20...40...78..116..192..180..354..278..530..268..546..124...32
.7....4....8...20...40...80..122..244..336..628..628.1130..788.1362..878.1168..354..292...16
where k is the path length in nodes.
In an attempt to define the irregularity of the array, it appears that the maximum value of k is 3n for 2 <= n <= 3, 3n1 for n = 4 and 3n  floor((n2)/3) for n >= 5. Reading this array by rows gives the sequence. One half of the numbers of paths constitute the sequence to remove the effect of the bilateral symmetry of the rectangle.
