It seems like coredump or segmentation fault will happen in the following cases, when running pin_export_price:

1.  DM_AQ is not started
2.  Pricing list is too large (or bigsize, dm_shmsize is not enough).
     ==> it will receive "PIN_ERR_STREAM_IO" error
3.  If the dm_ifw_sync configuration (bigsize, dm_shmsize) is not enough.
     ==> it will receive "PIN_ERR_STORAGE" error
