In several opcodes (BINBYTES, BINUNICODE... what else?), _pickle.c happily accepts 32-bit lengths of more than 2**31, while pickle.py uses marshal's "i" typecode which means "signed"... and therefore fails reading the data.
Apparently, pickle.py uses marshal for speed reasons, but marshal doesn't support unsigned types.
