Can not turn off terminal beep for completion

I have set my ~/.inputrc like this:

set print-completions-horizontally on
set show-all-if-ambiguous on
set show-all-if-unmodified on
set visible-stats on

But still, when I, for example, enter

  ls <TAB>

the terminal beeps. Even if I set in .inputrc:

set bell-style none

it beeps. This applies to rxvt and to the standard cygwin command
line window.

How can I turn off the beep?
