Few short thoughts:
- Get to know what error have you got: python one and what is in couch logs?
- Have you reached max document size?
- Try to store same data via curl - if this test passed, so there is
not CouchDB problem
- In last case you have to fill issue at ticket to let us to not
forget about this situation(;

P.S. IRL, imho, you have to keep documents smaller as they could be to
have lesser memory usage and faster documents processing by CouchDB
and it's clients.
