It sounds to me as though you have a problem with your
$CVSROOT/CVSROOT/val-tags file.

You may wish to move it aside and see if that fixes your problem.
(The file is just a cache of tags available in your repository and
actually removing it would not be a problem, but moving it out of the
way may let you see if it fixes the problem and leave you something to
look at to figure out how it got broken in the first place.
