Section 7.1.2 says:

        C    ciphertext to be decrypted, an octet string of length k,
             where k = 2hLen + 2

It should say:

        C    ciphertext to be decrypted, an octet string of length k,
             where k >= 2hLen + 2

Notes:

In the "Input:" section, near the top of the page, the condition
specified for 'k' is too restrictive. {This becomes clear from
the context - see e.g. 'step 1. c.' in mid-page 22.}
