This affects only 3.7, where the new SafeUUID enum was introduced.

This was fixed on the master branch (3.8) while implementing issue30977.

Fixing this should simply require defining similar __getstate__ and __setstate__ methods as in 3.8.

New changeset a2ea9448c677706d6318eaa71101f08df7604eb9 by Tal Einat in branch '3.7':
[3.7] bpo-34621: backwards-compatible pickle UUID with is_safe=unknown (GH-14834)
msg348999 - (view) Author: Tal Einat (taleinat) * (Python committer) Date: 2019-08-04 19:30
Note that the original fix, in PR GH-9133, contained a bug: UUID objects with `is_safe` set to `SafeUUID.unknown` would cause an exception if unpickled with Python <3.7.

This was reported by Thomas Wiebe in a comment to a commit in that PR:

This is now fixed, see PR GH-14834.
