Please see for
background for this issue.

As you can see from that discussion, Dmitry Gutov kindly implemented new
option for =E2=80=98blink-matching-paren=E2=80=99 as per my request. Now it=
 can be set
to =E2=80=98jump-offscreen=E2=80=99, so when you type matching closing pare=
Emacs jumps to opening parenthesis even if it's not currently visible,
then it quickly jumps back. (I set period to half a second, and overall
effect is just fantastic.)

The problem is that this doesn't work at all if =E2=80=98show-paren-mode=E2=
=80=99 is
enabled. I'm using =E2=80=98show-paren-mode=E2=80=99 constantly and I would=
 like to use
it together with new jumping feature, that would be great.

Could you please make =E2=80=98show-paren-mode=E2=80=99 and =E2=80=98blink-=
matching-paren=E2=80=99 work
