Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-control-center (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Confirmed


Description:
Bash beeps every time user presses tab, often many times for every
command line given.

On an office full of Ubuntus, continous beeping is annoying. Tab
completition is one of the most used features of bash shell. There is
absolutely no point in beeping all the time. Even though this is "just"
an interface issue, it is something almost every user wants to change
right away.

I suggested changing this in gnome-terminal (Bug #34745), but as noted
in gnome bugzilla, it should (also) be changed in bash.
