I'd take a look at do_md in src/kernel/md.c and see for myself :-)
I think the question is moot, because I have the off-hand impression that, for the md integrator, constraints are not implemented through modifying the force vectors, but rather imposed by the constraint algorithm upon the post-integration positions. I could be wrong - I've never needed to look at that code - but if the force vector is not being passed to the constraint routine...

The confusion I have is that " what force is it? is it the force before constraints ( fixed bonds) are applied or is it the effective force due to atom-atom interactions plus any constraints?"
