ORA-4031 occurs if many SELECT statements with hint /*+ cursor_sharing_exact */ are running serially and cursor_sharing is set to FORCE on the instance.
If we take out the hint /*+ cursor_sharing_exact */ the error stops.
Also, if we set cursor_sharing to EXACT the error stops.
This occurs for example with a script, which contains 1,000,000 SELECT statements with the hint.
