Instead of

| Inaccessible Directories
|
| A restrictive superuser umask during package installation can
| create inaccessible directories.

it should say:

| Inaccessible Directories
|
| A restrictive superuser umask during package installation can
| create inaccessible directories on target platforms using the
| RPM Package Manager older than 4.4.2.3. Fedora 9 and RHEL 5.3
| are the first to use RPM 4.4.2.3, which sets umask 0022 always.
