Trying to delete a client and all it's data from GRR. Sync=False is trying to be passed to the DeleteSubject function but there is no sync argument for that function.

In [7]: token = access_control.ACLToken(username="Me", reason="Removing test clients")

In [8]: aff4.FACTORY.Delete(rdfvalue.ClientURN("C.ebb1a9185cd7b5e3 "))
INFO:2014-11-04 20:10:46,294 aff4:722] Found 117 objects to remove when removing aff4:/C.ebb1a9185cd7b5e3

Thanks this is a bug in the data store implementations. The Mongo datastore takes this parameter, but mysql and sqlite do not. They should just discard it (since they are already synchronized).

You can just fix it but adding the sync=False parameter to the implementation you are using (either sqlite or mysql).

This also affects deleting artifacts in the artifact manager. This isn't terribly surprising as it also uses the DeleteSubject function.
