Norwegian term or phrase: Avviksløp
This is a heading for a paragraph in a software manual that includes this statement: "Det er spesielt viktig å ha egne beskrivelser av avvik der disse er kompliserte for å øke lesvennligheten til normalflyten."

"Avviksløp" appears just twice in Google search, and there is no clear help from that quarter. The irony of using "avviksløp" while trying to "øke lesvennligheten" is amusing but mildly frustrating. I am inclined to translate it as "deviation path".

Does anyone have something better or a reference to confirm my translation?
