That is almost certainly because you are using Perl 5.005 compiled to use
multiple program threads.
LaTeX2HTML currently does not work with that latest version of Perl,
UNLESS you recompile it to *not* allow multiple threads.

However, the latest development version of LaTeX2HTML *is*,
(or at least very soon will be) thread-safe.
With any luck it'll be available next week.

You can get alpha versions already, from the development site:

Nope. Just get it afresh from the development site.
Your testing would be most welcome.
