Should be sorted now.  What seemed to have happened was that the north 
wall of the bank which was shared with the south wall of the next 
building had got merged with the footpath / tunnel, and the three walls 
of the bank no longer appeared as a building because it wasn't closed on 
the north side.  I removed the "bank" tags from the footway and closed 
the building, so hopefully it should look OK now.

It might be that it would be better having a small gap between the two 
buildings down which the footpath runs (presumably there is a gap at 
ground floor level but not above) rather than having the tunnel sharing 
nodes with the walls of the adjacent building, but at least the bank's 
back as a building now.
