show-paren-mode error?

in latest EmacsW32 unpatched (see further version info below).

It seems for me that show-paren-mode can handle only one matching
paren at the same time, though it can happen easily that 2 matching
paren exist. Please fix the mode to highlight both in such cases.

If you view the current behaviour to be a feature (instead of a bug),
then please fix the mode's documentation to express this clearly.

If you modify the current behaviour, then please consider adding
customizable option(s) to fine-tune the behaviour: e.g. highlighting
the two matching parens in different colours...

1. emacs -Q
2. type ()()
3. M-x show-paren-mode
4. M-: (goto-char 3)
Now both the first opening paren and the second (last) closing paren
are matching, but only the first is highlighted.

Thanks in advance,
