Are you sure this is only with the new features?

The idea of inserting matchers with
self-insert-command is to allow other hooks to run recursively, but it
has some problems as described by the FIXME's that I found before my
changes electric-pair-mode.

Indeed, it wasn't "self inserted" it, it was "electric
inserted". electric-pair--insert is this abstraction and it's used to
insert matchers. It does some rebinding of vars to keep other modes like
blink-matching-paren from interfering. Maybe eldoc-mode deserves a place
in there?

   (defun electric-pair--insert (char)
     (let ((last-command-event char)
           (blink-matching-paren nil)
           (electric-pair-mode nil)
           (eldoc-mode nil))
       (self-insert-command 1)))

Haven't tested though... Will have little time the coming weeks, sorry.
