Yes, so technically the LaTeX snippets are still there, but slightly  
modified, and in a new bundle -- if one wants to preserve the  
originals, one should use duplicate, but you probably know that now :)

No, you need to go locate the snippets on disk, then load them into  
TextMate as the XML files they are, there will be something like this  
(near the bottom):


This long dash-separated hexadecimal string needs to be changed to a  
new UUID. One way is to select it, delete it, type uuidgen, select  
that, and then press ⌃⌥R -- this will execute uuidgen and replace  
the command with the result (a newly generated UUID.)

They are not showing up because they are technically now in your  
custom bundle.

Previously TM didn’t enforce this as strongly as it currently does,  
which is the only reason as to why you may have seen the originals  
and your customized versions in the past.
