It's coming from s_path.c, function open_via_helppath, label 
gotone_deprecated, line 428.

It's because of a bug in mrpeach/osc/routeOSC.c, function routeOSC_setup, 
line 146, which reads :

   class_sethelpsymbol(routeOSC_class, gensym("routeOSC-help.pd"));

when it ought to be :

   class_sethelpsymbol(routeOSC_class, gensym("routeOSC"));
