Yes, like it says, you're trying to do CG with constraints. :-) If you 
search the mailing list archives you will see some discussion of some 
water model that breaks CG because of constraints that are not 
eliminated by "constraints = none" in the .mdp file. I can't comment on 
whether your morse bonds are a problem.
