I trust you, but that's not the answer I expected, sorry.
I tried to follow the trace from the call of `eieio-persistent-save'
until I could find where it prints the content of the hash table.

What bothers me is that, in emacs 25, you had have  an short vector with
a symbol and now you've an big object dump instead.

Emacs 25 :
[eieio-class-tag--person "Bob"]

Emacs 26 :
#s(#2=#s(eieio--class person nil nil [#s(cl-slot-descriptor name #3=#:unbound 
string nil)] #s(hash-table size 65 test eq rehash-size 1.5 rehash-threshold 
0.8125 data (name 0)) nil ((:name . name)) #1=[] #1# #s(#2# #3#) 
(:custom-groups nil)) "Bob")

As a side note: as class tags are now eieio--class objects you can't read
an object saved with emacs 25 in emacs 26. Maybe this incompatibility
should be documented into NEWS ?

P.S.
I hope that I'm not too harsh. It's not my intention.
