New submission from Simon Hova <Simon at hova.net>:

When trying to use the shelve module, I noticed that it kept hanging while 
saving a rather large (~5 MB) object. I followed the source code, and found that 
it was simply pickling the object. When I tried to pickle it in pypy, it hangs 
in a loop (_batch_setitems), but it works perfectly in CPython. It pickles 
smaller objects normally. I can recreate the bug easily, but I don't know how to 
give documentation properly, so any tips would be appreciated.
