That doesn't happen here. There is no such message in the source code.
Maybe you have an older version of routeOSC? The OSC specification 
allows empty messages, and [routeOSC] should output a bang if it routes 
such a message.
Older versions of [routeOSC](before March 2012) didn't work properly, so 
you probably just need to find a more recent one or build it from svn.
