until it's fixed in TextMate, you can probably get by with leaving off 
the backticks in all your SQL queries.  The only time you would need 
them is if the mysql field, table, or database name includes some 
character that is not alphanumeric or an underscore.  Plus, you would 
be writing more portable SQL code by leaving out the backticks and 
avoiding funny characters in your identifiers altogether.
