Solution

The above errors are due to an incorrect simulation model for the PPC405. A tactical patch has been released for this problem and can be found at:
http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise7_updates/cr210169.tar.gz

Extract the archive in the Xilinx install directory. There is a Readme file for further instructions.

This problem will be fixed in an upcoming service pack.
