Is it sufficiently stable that I should put a link to it
on the LaTeX2HTML mailing list site ?

This happens when one image is too large (vertically) for
the page size used when making images using LaTeX etc.
TeX gives you a blank page then puts the large image on the next
page. All subsequent pages are then out by one,
causing the images to be wrongly placed.

One solution is to use a larger $PAPERSIZE setting.

All the best
