It seems you used SWIG to create class B (or you use a library which
provides B and the library uses SWIG). By default, instances of classes
created by SWIG are not serializable. You'd get the same error if you tried
pickle.dumps( B() )
So what you (or the library author) need to do is add one or more of the
methods for serialization explained here:
