I don't know what those iFn([6500000, 4949026, 0]) means but I just add 
2 lines after
k = fmin_cobyla(...)
(here k is optimal solution obtained by cobyla)

    constraints = [allCons[i](k) for i in xrange(len(allCons))]
    print 'max v:', min(constraints)

so it prints
max v: -2.37501074363e-10

and hence all constraints are positive, as it is required by cobyla.
