Could you try with this:

            # Read in anohter chunk of the file
            # NOTE: It's possible that an XML tag will be greater than buffsize
            #       This will break in that situation
-            newb =
+            newb =

Also, could you provide the output of
strace -emmap2,sbrk,brk python <script>

I could be completely wrong, but both in your case and in wrobell's case, there's a lot of _PyBytes_Resize going on, and given how PyObject_Realloc is implemented, this could lead to heavy heap fragmentation.
