I am sorry for having caused so much confusion!

My German-English 'uncomment' == "auskommentieren" is of course a false friend and I am not proud of it. ;-)
Especially now… Now that I realized that I am almost caused a nuclear war… ;-) Richard seems to have a typical dark British humour! ;-)

Well, just to clarify this unambiguously once and for all, what I meant was that I COMMENTED the portarchievetype parameter and then - as Dominik already wrote - the default kicks in, being tbz2!
