Something very similar has been reported before, generally it is nothing to worry about.

Edit: The 'C' in question refers to an internal flag to signify the route is 'Cached'.

Very good, and thanks for your response!

The syntax caught my eye while troubleshooting, is all.

It works very well, and thanks for a fine product!
