Thank you for reporting this. I've just fixed it on the instance on 

For those who want to fix their instance:
change line 297 of src/overpass_api/statements/print.cc to
    <<"\" role=\""<<escape_xml(roles[skel.members[i].role])<<"\"/>\n";

Otherwise, the fix will be included in the next regular update.

Best regards,
