That sounds like the binary is picking up different dynamic libraries 
inside and outside the sandbox, or possibly it isn't even the same binary. 
Not sure what platform you are on, but try to run:

   ldd `which APPLICATION`

inside and outside the sandbox and see what comes back, where APPLICATION 
is the name of your application, not including the path.
