 From https://www.12000.org/my_notes/l2hwin/index.htm   it says
down the page under "Some errors and possible solution"

"some of the bitmap images produced for the mathematics
in the document have a solid dark bar, usually at the
bottom or the side of the bitmap image. The reason for
this is unknown. But I found by trial and error that
setting the following values in my l2hconf.pm eliminated
most if not all of these


Some mathematics equations are still underlined, even
after doing the above. I found this was the case when I
was using linux. If you still see the underlines, then
try the following: edit l2hconf.pm and set the value of DVIPSOPT as follows
            $DVIPSOPT = '-E' ;


You could try the above and see if it works for you.
