TextMate inherits the system-wide key bindings. Prior to Snow Leopard  
command-arrow left/right were defined to go to begin/end of line. With  
Snow Leopard the system wide keys changed (I think to be more insync  
with right-to-left scripts), Apple of course updated NSTextView etc.  
to these new bindings.

We updated TextMate as well but you may need cutting edge for this  
(Preferences → Software Update).
