Protocol Ping Strangness....

Good afternoon,

I am attempting to use the protocol ping option, -PO, and I don't
think that it is acting as intended. Sample output below:

user () deb7-test2-32bit:~$ sudo nmap -PO 89 -pT:22
Starting Nmap 6.41SVN ( http://nmap.org ) at 2013-09-10 10:08 EDT
setup_target: failed to determine route to 89 (
Nmap scan report for
Host is up (0.00090s latency).

MAC Address: 00:1A:E3:B2:B3:EA (Cisco Systems)
Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 0.10 seconds is a lab cisco router running ospf in the case of this scan.
The setup_target line seem to be indicating nmap is looking at address rather than protocol 89.
