No, you did the right thing.

For Autorouting, you can use arcs, but they must somehow be contained within
an enclosed polygon shape keepout with no arcs.  You have to enclose corner
arcs with a 90 degree corner etc.

To make a circular board you would create the keepout circle(arc) and then
surround it with a rectangle so it will work.  The router will stay within
the circle, but requires the rectangle to initialize.

Then... remove the 'workaround' tracks when you are done if you do not want
them.
