I now see the problem. What you want to do cannot possibly work.

You are trying to create a string object that is larger than 2GB; this
is not possible on a 32-bit system (which I assume you are using). No
matter how you modify the read() function, it would always return a
string that is so large it cannot fit into the address space.

This will be fixed in Python 2.6, which has a separate .open method,
allowing to read the individual files in the zipfile as streams.
