Yes. Thank you for catching that. I just revised it:

10. What happens is the following. Since an Arahant has removed all āsavā, the “vedanā paccayā taṇhā” step in Paṭicca samuppāda will not take place. Thus, the akusala-mula Paṭicca samuppāda will NOT operate for an Arahant. Furthermore, since there are no akusala to get rid of, kusala-mula Paṭicca samuppāda will also not operate.
