Couldn't this be linked to #11564 (pickle not 64-bit ready)? AFAICT this wasn't fixed in 2.7. Basically, an integer overflow, and malloc() would bail out when asked a ridiculous size.

I'd be curious to see the last lines of
$ ltrace -e malloc python

you'll probably see a call to malloc() return NULL.
