This does not appear in my edition (Schmidt, ed.).

Do you definitely mean the third measure? Because there's a a double sharp on the G in the fourth measure.
Yes, the third measure. In the Mule edition, there is also a double sharp on the G in the fourth measure, but I'm not troubled by that. Carvingcode's theory is interesting ; hopefully a oboe player can tell us wether the marking would make sense for a oboe.

Some alternate fingerings for G# make use of the left-hand C#, B and even Bb key. I could see an argument in favor of using the C# if one also was holding down that key when coming from middle C#. But that's kind of a stretch...

The Billaudot edition (Collection Pierre Pierlot) uses that 2. This edition is for oboe and saxophone. This edition contains several keying suggestions for oboe players in the form of footnotes. The 2 BTW appears in several other places, and it is not confined to G (well, G# in this case).
