[l2h] Strange pstoimg error...

Even when I provide -transparent -white -antialias_text -antialias
to latex2html, some of the .png images I get have a non-transparent
grey background. [Only some images have this problem ... ]

So then I tried "-image_type gif", but that gives a strange error -
pstoimg fails - but when I run the exact same pstoimg commands
by hand (pnmcrop, ppmtogif etc) on the exact same files, it works!

Here's the log (DEBUG on) - any ideas?
