Weird, I tried the attached code on another (older) Windows machine and it 
executed fine. I changed all the keys to be unicode and it failed with a string 
lookup (attached). Could you try running this code instead?

valid_key = big_dict.keys()[0]
print "Valid key: %s" % big_dict[valid_key]
print "Invalid key: %s" % big_dict["test"]
