Lionello, after a very brief mental rake-over, I would say that most British English speakers pronounce “room” the same way as you do, although I would say that both forms of pronounciation are used for “room” on its own and that the long “oo” is slightly more “posh”. Those that have a regional accent, however, would pronounce both forms of “room” the same.

An older cousin of mine was actually living in Goleta when they burned the Bank of America down. (damned Hippies)

Not sure if it’s a small world or a small board, but I was a freshman at UCSB the year the B of A was burned (it was the 69/70 school year). UCSB is great. I’ll never forget seeing guys in wetsuits taking chemistry finals with their boards stacked in the corner of the lecture hall.
