How to disable annoying ‘parenthesis completion’


Whenever I type a (, [, or {, Notepad++ completes it with the corresponding closing bracket. I find this 'feature' annoying and would like to disable it. It doesn't seem to be listed in the Preferences dialog and a search of the online documentation didn't yield any useful result.
Does anybody here know where the option for this is hidden?
I'm currently using Notepad++ 5.0.3.

From version 6.6.8 onward:

Go to Settings -> Preferences -> Auto-Completion

In the second grouping called "Auto-Insert", check/un-check the appropriate auto completion/inserts.
