bug: one of the 3 linked devices refuses access because I have 3 devices linked

bug: one of the 3 linked devices refuses access because I have 3 devices linked

I have 3 devices linked: ipad, notebook and desktop PC. It worked for years, but now suddenly the ipad app says "To link this device, try Dropbox plus. You've reached your plan's device limit."
When I click the "unlink some devices" option it lists my 3 devices including "ipad: this device", so the app knows I'm not trying to link a new device, it knows it's on one of my 3 linked devices.
Anyway when I select to unlink my notebook it says "to continue, you need to unlink 3 devices"

Unlink the iPad and relink it, sounds like its trying to create a new connection

Do you only have three devices listing at https://www.dropbox.com/account/security ?

thanks, so far it seems it helped.
I tried that earlier within the ipad, but it didn't allow me to unlink it, but it worked though the web interface
