[tex-live] tex4ht broken in TeXLice CD

I got my TeXLive DVD and went happily for the long install,
just on the hopes of being able to use the new version of 
"tex4ht" which is a nice piece of software but with 
incomprehensible installation instructions.

I finish the installation of MikTeX, did the Synchronization 
and update of new packages but that did NOT list "tex4ht" even 
though a new package was made available on March 01.

Went on to try, but to my surprise it does NOT work straight 
out of the box. On a small file like:


\[ \lim_{n \to \infty} f(x) = e^x \]


It bombs out and complains of "Illegal storage address" and the file
contains no MathML, as one would expect.

Here is the bottom of the error message:

Does anyone know how to fix tex4ht in TeXLive?
