Podio rate limit remaining issue

I'm using the NET client to sync podio with our own database.

I have some trouble understanding the podio rate limit and when my sync script is about to reach the limit.

I have noticed the response contains information about rate limit with X-Rate-Limit-Limit and X-Rate-Limit-Remaining, but this doesn't seem to be correct.

When using itemservice filteritems, I can get a ratelimit exception even though the api respond with:

X-Rate-Limit-Limit: 250

X-Rate-Limit-Remaining: 235

Is this an error or have I misunderstood something?

You should get rate limit exceptions only when X-Rate-Limit-Remaining drops to 0.
I could not reproduce this issue. Is it happening consistently?

The limit is related to the API key. When you authenticate as an app you are still using the key - so limit values are the same as when authenticating as a user.
