html.parser.HTMLParser.unescape works only with the first 128 entities, it leaves the other ones as they are.

Added a test case:

If you set the loop < 128 then the test passes (set at 1000 right now).

The unescape() method uses re.sub(regex, sub, re.ASCII), but the third argument is count, not flags. Fix is easy: use

re.sub(regex, sub, flags=re.ASCII).
