Which version are you using? If too much changes outside TextMate then 
it may lose the mapping between loaded/known folders and those on disk, 
and will collapse them as a result (since it's basically just 
re-reading the structure from disk) -- in v1.1 I may instead place 
hidden files in the folders similar to .DS_Store files to keep info 
about various states, though I'm not sure how well received this will 
be (though it'll only be for when the state is different than the 
default state, so it shouldn't spew out as many files as e.g. the 
Finder does when browsing a network mounted drive).

It only checks for changed files when you re-activate TextMate, but 
when you do, it should find (and update) all changed files.

I'm looking into using kqueue in the future for instant file updates.
