Your terminal is messed up.  Try `reset'.

The sort order is supposed to change; that's the whole reason for that
option.

Reset your terminal.  When I try this, I get:

$ ls b
bash              bashhist.o        bashversion.dSYM/ buildsignames.o
bashbug           bashline.o        bracecomp.o       buildversion.o
bashenv           bashversion       braces.o          builtins/
$ bind 'set print-completions-horizontally on'
$ ls b
bash              bashbug           bashenv           bashhist.o
bashline.o        bashversion       bashversion.dSYM/ bracecomp.o
braces.o          buildsignames.o   buildversion.o    builtins/
$ ls b
bash              bashbug           bashenv           bashhist.o
bashline.o        bashversion       bashversion.dSYM/ bracecomp.o
braces.o          buildsignames.o   buildversion.o    builtins/

on bash-4.4-alpha, hitting TAB after the `b' on each line.
