What percentage of your bugs are caused by errors in memory management? (ie: an extra delete, a missing 'new', etc...)

In the specific area of memory management as you define it, about 5-10% (for C++).

Very few in general. I'd have to say 5%. Boneheaded errors by far constitute the largest of my problems.

does accessing areas of memory that dont' exist constitute a memory problem? That is a pretty big problem for me so I encounter those a lot of the time but I also fix those before I 'release' anything. New and delete doesn't really pose a problem for me all that often. Unless I try accessing something I deleted.........

I would say so, yes. ;)
