Presumably the current directory isn't within the sandbox.  If cvs hasn't
seen the tag before (not in the val-tags list) it does extra things to try
to validate the tag, that require you to be within a sandbox.  Try
changing directory then just referring to the constants.h file, which
should be better (and faster).
