Project exceeds its monthly limit


I have set a quota limit (max VUh per month) of 1000 VUh for a project in my k6 dashboard. Now when i try to run a simple spike test with the following stages:

  stages: [
    { duration: "2m", target: 2000 }, 
    { duration: "1m", target: 0 }, 

I get the following error message in my terminal: ERRO[0001] (400/E2) Project exceeds its monthly limit of 1000 VUH. Planned usage: 2001.0..

It says that it exceeds the monthly limit by 1000 VUh, but if this formula is correct, it should be 2000 * 3 / 60 = 100 VUh

Am i completely misunderstanding something or is this a bug?
