	I have had this same problem. With the help of a more knowledgable
friend we traced it to using the package amsmath and \author in the same
file. He even traced it to the perl script I believe but could go no
further. He was having some problems reporting the bug so he may not have.
He does not use l2h so it would not have been a priority. 
	My makeshift solution was to comment out \author and then make
another document that just had the maketitle lines. Then after running
both through l2h I cut and pasted the title section into my html page.
Hope that helps
