It is if your program is written to do that.

Maybe you could post the script for more eyes to debug, but generally,
this case will occur when "calls" aren't completed and another started.
Just fills up one of your quotas.

Then again, the fault could be in the underlying createCharStyle or
createParagraphStyle code in which case it needs to reported as a bug.
