I cannot reproduce your problem using the original string:

>>> s = u'{"selected_objects":{"datacenter-2":{"name":"Data !@#$%25^&*()_ {}[]|%
5c%2f.,?><:\\"`Center8(Data !@#$%^&*()_ {}[]|\\\\/.,?><:\
\"`Center8)","type":"Da
tacenter","moid":"datacenter-2","ac tual_name":"Data !@#$%25^&*()_ {}
[]|%5c%2f.,
?><:\\"`Center8","server_pools":[{"name":"cluster ~!@#$%25^&*()_ {}|\
\":?><,.%2f
;\'%5c][=-`(cluster ~!@#$%^&*()_ {}|\\":?><,./;\'\\\\][=-
`)","type":"ClusterComp
uteResource","moid":"domain- c401","actual_name":"cluster ~!@#$
%25^&*()_ {}|\\":
?><,.%2f;\'%5c][=-`","hosts":[{"name":"192.168.1.13","type":"HostSys
tem","moid"
:"host-27","actual_name":"192.168.1.13"}]}]}}}'
>>> json.loads(s)
{u'selected_objects': {u'datacenter-2': {u'ac tual_name': u'Data !@#$
%25^&*()_ {
}[]|%5c%2f.,?><:"`Center8', u'moid': u'datacenter-2', u'type':
u'Datacenter', u'
name': u'Data !@#$%25^&*()_ {}[]|%5c%2f.,?><:"`Center8(Data !@#$
%^&*()_ {}[]|\\/
.,?><:"`Center8)', u'server_pools': [{u'hosts': [{u'actual_name':
u'192.168.1.13
', u'moid': u'host-27', u'type': u'HostSys tem', u'name':
u'192.168.1.13'}], u'a
ctual_name': u'cluster ~!@#$%25^&*()_ {}|":?><,.%2f;\'%5c][=-`',
u'moid': u'doma
in- c401', u'type': u'ClusterComputeResource', u'name': u'cluster ~!@#$
%25^&*()_
 {}|":?><,.%2f;\'%5c][=-`(cluster ~!@#$%^&*()_ {}|":?><,./;\'\\][=-
`)'}]}}}
>>>

Notice the space in the first occurance of the key 'actual_name' (and
later in 'HostSys tem') however. Could it be a non-printable character
like an EOL that's somehow managed to make its way into your string?

Other than that, I'm at a loss as to why you're seeing a difference.
Which version of Python are you using?
