Sounds like a rather common programming error, perhaps trying to 
dereference pointers that are null.

That is very unlikely, IMO.

They tell the Ada compiler that the named package and the named types 
will and should have very simple initialization requirements (default 
initialization, for the types). They have no (visible) effect on how the 
program executes and, AIUI, cannot be related to your memory access 

For more explanation, see the Ada RM,

If you would like help on the memory access exceptions, do describe the 
problem more in detail here, and perhaps someone can help.
