How do I limit the number of workflows generated within a library

I create a Workflow that triggers on a new item.  Part of this workflow Copied an item to the same library which of course triggered another workflow.  It did error out for some other reason, but how do I ensure that there is a limit of the amount of workflows that can be created/run.  Is this a setting change or is there an automatic default ?

 

The reason I ask is I want to put some type of safety measure in my workflows which are typically minute workflows to prevent unending workflows due to an error.
