Section 5.5.3. says:

       This checksum or hash is encrypted together with the
       algorithm-specific fields (if string-to-key usage octet is not
       zero).

It should say:

       For V4 keys this checksum or hash is encrypted together with the
       algorithm-specific fields (if string-to-key usage octet is not
       zero).

Notes:

The following text says:
With V3 keys, the checksum is stored in the clear. With V4 keys,
the checksum is encrypted like the algorithm-specific data.

Changed to editorial.
--VERIFIER NOTES--
Text describing V3 keys precedes this text.
