[routeOSC] will only match the first part of the address.
you cannot match multiple address parts at once.
since /foo/bar contains to address parts (/foo and /bar) it won't work.


[routeOSC /foo]
[routeOSC /bar]

if this is what you want.

the help-patch doesn't make this explicit.
but its the same for [route]:
you don't expect [route foo bar] to output '42' from the "foo bar 42"
message :-)
