It's a known problem, related to netpbm and the  pnmcrop utility,
and the fact that LaTeX2HTML-99.1 is out-of-date in some respects.


 pnmcrop -version


 pnmcrop --help

to find out which version you have installed.

The problem may go away if you upgrade netpbm to something
later than  v9.14 .

More importantly, you should upgrade LaTeX2HTML to the latest version,
available from  www.latex2html.org .

Indeed, just upgrading LaTeX2HTML may be enough, as it is
aware of the different requirements for different versions
of pnmcrop, whereas the v99.1 version was written before
the changes in  pnmcrop  were introduced.
