Interpretation of \x escapes was tightened up in 2.0 I believe. In versions
earlier than 2.0 '\xyy' is interpreted as the four-character sequence:
\ x y y
In 2.0 and 2.1 the ValueError you see is raised because "yy" can't be
interpreted as a hex number.
I'm not sure what the solution is. Someone with more pickle/string/
internals knowledge will probably have some ideas.
