As i explain in my answer to Mark, i finally could get it to work.

However i noticed someting interresting: i have some client test code
that at some point calls a server function with as parameter a list of
structures of size 10000. This worked perfecly well with the default
server implementation, but it raises a socket error exception when
connecting to the twisted thrift server implementation. The only
difference in the client code is using TFramedTransport instead of
TBufferedTransport. If i reduce the size of the list to 3000 items
instead of 10000, it works well.

the declaration of the function and the structures contained in the list

struct Timestamp {
  1: i32 s = -2147483648,
  2: i32 micro_s = 0,

struct Measure {
  1: Timestamp ts,
  2: optional i32 i32_val,
  3: optional i64 i64_val,
  4: optional double double_val,
  5: optional string string_val,
  6: optional bool bool_val,

void foo(1: string id1, 2: string id2, 3: list<Measure> measures)

Is there any known size limitations with TFramedTransport that are lower
than with TBufferedTransport?

Apart from this particular call with a huge list, there are currently no
problem running my test code with the twisted thrift implementation.
