bell after incomplete completion

No, that isn't the right setting. Its an actual bell, (i.e. the sound you
get when you hit C-g).
I've been trying to get ~/.initrc to work using the preference 'set
prefer-visible-bell On', but bash doesn't seem to use that file.
The readline info is the correct stuff to be looking at right? Bash uses
that for completion and keys?
Anyone know of B20 problems or common luser errors related to this?

In the "sounds" control panel, change the setting for "Default Beep".
