That is not fixing the renderer. That is a workaround for the problem.

Another issue with reuse of segments is where you have a garden or  
car park with roads all around it. There will be a problem with the  
direction of the segments, especially if you have multiple of these  
areas with adjacent segments.

On such example is where you have the roads in the shape of a T, and  
you have areas in each of the 3 sides of the T. (i.e. top, lower  
left, and lower right). This is simply impossible, you need to use  
separate segments in this case.
