"char buffer type not available" error while gunzip

I'm getting exception while trying to gunzip data, which is stored in
File "", line 33, in gunzip
f = StringIO(data)
"exceptions.TypeError: char buffer type not available"

function which does gunzipping:
def gunzip(s):
print type(data)) #prints <type 'buffer'>
f = StringIO(s)
gzipped = gzip.GzipFile(fileobj=f)

It's weird, because it does not happen every time.
Thanks a lot for any help!
