Same on my side... (CS5)
It doesn't look good.
However, did you try to reach your goal by redefining paragraphStyles properties or just paragraph's properties?
sorry missread the question, doesn't work here either

Thanks for taking the time to look into this (and thanks Trevor for doing the same). At least it seems I'm not the one at fault on this one.
I plan on modifying the properties of each paragraph and leave paragraphStyles as is. Otherwise I would have to cope with duplicate styles, and with 40 languages that won't be a pretty sight. The only paragraphs to be changed are the ones that are located on a given layer and have a specific appliedNumberingList. I wrote a layer/ textframe/ paragraph crawler that does the trick.
