The two roundabouts I encountered were here


and I could have sworn that there was another one here


but that last one magically disappeared.

Just a wild guess: are your 'fine' roundabouts possibly somewhere in GB?

It's without a space here. The 'have to start looking at the style  
files' part goes unchanged for me too.
