Account poid is not valid

At the end of attached log file pin_rerate.pinlog.gz you can find that supplied input account poid was converted to some dummy number (-1137647319) and that is probably the reason why message "Account poid is not valid" was raised.

Investigation shows that pin_rerate is not able to accept longer number as input account (-a) poid parameter (probably only int32 number can be supplied).

Supplied input parameters to pin_rerate were:
pin_rerate –reason 55 –t 07/24/2010 –a 3157319977

Steps to reproduce:
1. Find in database account with poid_id0 > 3000000000.
2. Create rerate job for this account by using pin_rerate
Pin_rerate –reason 55 –t <……..> -a 3100000000

Currently there is more than 1 million of accounts on production environment with poid_id0 longer than 3000000000.
