Re: blink-matching-paren doesn't blink

In Bash 4.1 downloaded and patched from the case.edu Bash site, when I
do bind -v I see "set blink-matching-paren on" (and have non-working
paren matching) without having changed any compile-time settings and
with no corresponding command in any startup files.

So I don't know how it got (half) enabled.
