Theoretically, but there still could be a few things going wrong, one of
which being that you and your Cygwin environment have different ideas of
what $HOME is.  Try running "bind 'set bell-style none'" from the bash
command line...

Also, I vaguely recall that there were problems with "bell-style none".
Try "set bell-style visible" instead.
