Section 7.1.2 says:

   K        recipient's RSA private key (k denotes the length in octets
            of the RSA modulus n)
   C        ciphertext to be decrypted, an octet string of length k,
            where k = 2hLen + 2

It should say:

   K        recipient's RSA private key (k denotes the length in octets
            of the RSA modulus n), where k >= 2hLen + 2
   C        ciphertext to be decrypted, an octet string of length k

Notes:

k >= 2hLen + 2 belongs to K, not to C.

The >= is already reported in #592.
