Indeed, there is corrupted copy_reg.py file residing in my $PYTHONPATH folder, as opposed to the standard one from the installed package. Thanks a lot for your helps!

Looking at cPickle.c, it imports the copy_reg module and then looks for
its "_extension_registry" attribute. Maybe your copy_reg.py is broken, or
you have another copy_reg.py hiding the standard one.
