Frans Pop gave me access to his machine. I have some more information
on the bug.
If I compile from full GNADE source (not using the GNADE dynamic or
static libraries), the code works.
With the dynamic library, I get a SIGSEGV, somewhere in the program
startup, before any user code.
With the static library, I get a stack overflow (caught and reported
by the Ada runtime), during elaboration of a compiler-provided
So the problem is related to libraries, which means it's probably in
the linker and/or loader somewhere.
It seems clear that no user will be able to use GNADE in its current
form on hppa, so I should remove hppa from the arch list in
debian/control for the squeeze release.
If there is some more debugging I could do?
