Yup, mine too.

Another option - possibly a safer one - is to base the max length on
the roundabout diameter, if that's easily deduced. Twice roundabout
diameter would probably be a safe assumption.

I saw a few forks, including one roundabout that was, to put it
politely, buggered. So another nice warning in our armoury. This
particular one would probably have shown up as an overlap too, but I
think I had it fixed by the time overlaps were detected by name. We're
in the happy position in Ireland of (now) having fairly healthy
roundabouts, so with any luck I won't be able to provide much new
feedback :D
