Default Kmer Result of FastQC Report

Hey guys, so a question regarding the kmer section of the FastQC report.

I notice that mine is 'Relative enrichment over read length', whereas when my colleague tried the exact same analysis on the exact same file, he gets 'log2 obs/exp'.

Our graphs of course look very different as well.

We both have the same version though - 0.10.1.

Anyone have any idea as to why this is the case, and what can be done to select the preferred analysis? Both are using default settings... so yeah, rather weird. ><

Are you sure about that?
I just checked it and all my fastqc reports generated with 0.10.1 read 'Relative enrichment over read length' whereas all reports generated with 0.11.1 or 0.11.2 read 'log2 obs/exp'.
