It's odd because it doesn't happen all the time. I mounted the volume
and opened some files and, as suspected, lsof doesn't show TextMate
having a file open. Even after I make a change and save the file -
doing the same operations I did while actually working on the files.
(they're HTML pages and I did have the web preview window open too..
thought that may have some bearing - but I just did that too and don't
see anything.)

FYI..I hadn't used the open/save panels earlier - just dragging files
to the Dock icon.
