Section Appendix B.2 says:

KeyHash ::= OCTET STRING -- SHA-1 hash of responder's public key
                         -- (excluding the tag and length fields)

It should say:

KeyHash ::= OCTET STRING -- SHA-1 hash of responder's public key
                         -- (i.e., the SHA-1 hash of the value of the
                         -- BIT STRING subjectPublicKey [excluding
                         -- the tag, length, and number of unused
                         -- bits] in the responder's certificate)

Notes:

These two descriptions of KeyHash produce different SHA-1 hashes due to different values: one is pure BIT STRING value block, with "unused bits" byte, but other - without "unused byte". Also the Appendix B.2 must be aligned with Appendix B.1 information.
