I think you have the same problem as me. By looking at the graphs of
your node on torstatus.kgprog.com, I note that your Tor doesn't keep the
average around the maximum bandwidth specified.
The limit imposed by RelayBandwidthBurst should be reached only for
short periods of time. Your curves show that you are, most of the time,
over the RelayBandwidthRate limit.
