1. This bug is related to dvips and there is no better workaround than
   to upgrade it.
2. It works with -tmp, but only half of the job is really done in that
   directory, namely the image conversions.
   The images.tex file still is held in the <work dir>/TMP.
dvips tries to determine the output directory by cutting after the
first dot in <work dir>/TMP/images.dvi which fails in your case.
Rather than -tmp, you could use -dir "/tmp/html" and copy the contents
back into the work dir after l2h finished.
But you should better install a newer dvips release.
