If the number of basic variables is not equal to the number of rows,
the basis is invalid and therefore cannot be used as initial basis
(at least glpk does not provide such a feature).
Rather than removing basic variables, that invalidates the basis, you
could fix them at zero; this gives the same effect, however, keeps the
basis valid.
