This geometrical structure seems to reflect exactly the geographical circumstances as seen on Bing.

I cannot figure out what should be done to tag it without getting another error report!

It is not a junction=roundabout so that would be incorrect. Replacing the circular road with highway=turning_circle is a option but then it only be a workaround to satisfy OSMI and does not reflect the actual geographical circumstances.

NOTE: I am an avid user of the errorcheck programmes and it is rather tiresome to be continually returned to such places where imho I can see no error.

Here is another one: What is wrong with it?

The second one is perhaps just a false positive? - the shorter path starts and ends at points on the longer path. It's worth a survey though, to see if there really is a "turnstile" on it.

I can't do that. Hundreds of km away.

Maybe add a note for a local mapper then?

To me both seem to be false positives. Interestingly I didn't encounter false positives duplicated ways on OSMI until now, although I'm trying to fix such errors regularly.

I do add notes and sometimes contact the contributor in question but I would only do that if I can see a valid error which requires local knowledge to rectify! Otherwise I would be wasting not only my time but his as well.
