Your CVSROOT/val-tags file has become corrupted.  Each line in that file
should contain a valid tag name followed by a space and the letter "y". 
If you check your file, you will find at least two lines that are
missing the tag name.  You can either delete just those lines, or you
can delete the whole file -- it's just a cache that CVS will recreate as
