Yes, that is exactly where the problem lies.

The condition should be:

if (defined &do_cmd_bibname||$renewcommand{'bibname'}) {

The reason is that early versions of LaTeX2HTML simply looked
at $bib_title and  do_cmd_bibname  was never defined,
unless there was a \renewcommand for it.

However later changes to the way \renewcommand works were found
to be necessary in other situations, so that this command
no longer defines  do_cmd_....
Instead it stores information in the  %renewcommand  hash.

Evidently i failed to update  natbib.perl  at the time when
this change was developed.

Hope this helps,
