When a class definition was re-executed (reload, exec ..) , pickling of existing instances fails for to picky reason (class object id mismatch). Solved by the one liner patch below.

Rational: Python is dynamic. Like with any normal attribute lookup: When its the same module/..name  this class is really meant - no matter about its id. 
(During unpickling its another id anyway, the code may have evolved years ...)
