It could be a problem with "split", but we'll need to dig a bit deeper
to be able to pinpoint the exact issue.

Could you please try the following commands and post the results?

    zcat MH1_R1.fastq.gz \
       | split --verbose -l 40000000 - DHT_R1_ > DHT_R1.log ; echo DHT_R1 exit 
code: $?
    zcat MH1_R2.fastq.gz \
       | split --verbose -l 40000000 - DHT_R2_ > DHT_R2.log ; echo DHT_R2 exit 
code: $?
    wc -l DHT_R1.log DHT_R2.log

Two more questions:
1. can you post the result of "split --version" ?
2. You mentioned "jobs" - if you are running these as submitted jobs on
a cluster (e.g. with "qsub"), can you double-check the STDERR log files
to ensure no errors where encountered ?

If we still can't pinpoint the issue, the next steps would be to check
the DHT_R{1,2}.log files, and then try to compare the content of the
splitted files.

I assume the input files are indeed correctly paired, but just to check,
if you could try the following command, it should not print anything
to the screen (indicating all sequence IDs are paired):

    paste <(zcat MH1_R2.fastq) <(zcat MH1_R2.fastq.gz) \
       | awk 'NR%4!=1 { next } $1!=$3 { print "Error in line " NR ":" $1 " vs " 
$3 }'
