from ?apply:
"If each call to FUN returns a vector of length n, and simplify is
TRUE, then apply returns an array of dimension c(n, dim(X)[MARGIN]) ."
For margin = 1 (cumsum over rows), each call to cumsum return a vector
of length 2. Hence the array returned will be of dimension c(2,
c(5,2)[1]) = c(2,5).
Cheers,
Bert
