Maybe your system is confgured in a way to limit the memory per process?
LaTeX2HTML can be rather hungry for memory, and your document is one of
the larger ones ;-)
You might try to split it into several chunks, concatenated with \input
We're working hard to reduce LaTeX2HTML's appetite for memory, mostly by
using Perl5-syntax (my) instead of local(). I'm not sure whether this will
help, but at least it shouldn't get worse...

Hope this helps a little,
