This turned out to be a bug in EMX. The annoying behaviour will be fixed
when a new DOS version of CLISP is built from the 1994-10-26 source.
For the moment, here is a workaround:

Create a file  \!INPUTRC  in the current drive's root directory, containing
the line

set blink-matching-paren off

and convert this file to Unix conventions (LF not CR/LF as line end marker,
no Ctrl-Z file end marker).
