Dear L2H-ers

Someone here has a largish (19-page) latex doc with maths markup
on most pages.  latex2html hangs at this point:

Writing image file ...

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1)
LaTeX2e <1998/12/01> patch level 1
Babel <v3.6x> and hyphenation patterns for american, french, german,
ngerman, i
talian, nohyphenation, loaded.
And latex just consumes more and more cpu time.

Output from latex2html -debug:

l2hSize :displaymath664:14.5pt::0.0pt::349.0pt.
l2hSize :eqnarraystar124:33.0pt::0.0pt::349.0pt.

! Missing $ inserted.
<inserted text>
l.481 \lthtmlinlinemathZ

l2hSize :tex2html_wrap_inline843:0.0pt::0.0pt::0.0pt.

Hangs at line 481 of images.tex:

477 {\newpage\clearpage
478 % contents=$\left( begin{array}{c} $
479 \lthtmlinlinemathA{tex2html_wrap_inline843}%
480 $\left( \begin{array}{c} $%
481 \lthtmlinlinemathZ
482 \lthtmlcheckvsize\clearpage}

This seems to be a null entry - is this OK or is this tripping
something up ?  Maybe a "mistake" in the original latex code ?

Any suggestions gratefully received.  In the meantime I will try
locating the latex code around the problem.

Many thanks
