[tex4ht] Why new multicolumn mode is lost when tex4ht generates pages with split option htlatex foo.tex "htm, 2"

When I run this:

htlatex foo.tex "htm"

Then the HTML pages are in 2 columns fine. But when I wanted to split
the web pages to physically different pagesrunning this

htlatex foo.tex "htm,2"

Then I found the section content are now no longer set in 2 columns
mode. Am I doing something wrong? or do I need additional
configuration to make it work when pages are split?

It is the same Latex file. Only change is just the above command,
changing "htm" to "htm,2"

MWE below.

I am running this on Linux, using the patch downloaded
from bug #188 entry http://puszcza.gnu.org.ua/bugs/?188

I have not done tlmgr update since I installed TL 2013. I assumed
the same patch I have would be the same on CTAN.
