Incompatibility between tex4ht and scrbook

Bug Description

Binary package hint: tex4ht

The current Ubuntu version uses TeXLive 2007, which contains scrbook v2.95b. The current tex4ht package uses a file named scrbook.4ht which contains two macros, which are not defined: \scr@compatibility and \csname scr@v@2.97d\endcsname.

This leeds to error messages in the following code:

  \ifnum \scr@compatibility>\@nameuse{scr@v@2.97d}\space

I don't know why \thesection is redefined at all, but if it is necessary those two macros should be defined.

I'd prefer to „fix“ the latter one in order to get regular fixes.
