I've looked at the raw bytes [through a ctypes pointer to id(s)] of a string affected by the issue, and decoded enough to be able to tell that the bad string has an incorrect UTF-8 length and data, which pickle presumably relies on.

I've omitted the UTF-8 data, but both were null-terminated after four and six bytes respectively.
