Yes, I've experienced it.  It seems to happen when the groups contain folders (as in, Finder folders showing up in blue in the drawer) and those folders have changes to them, like a new file is created, outside of TextMate.

I tend to work around it by opening a file in the project (it's either already open as a tab, or I know the name and use Command-T) and then press Command-Control-R to focus that file in the drawer, which will open any enclosing folders/groups in the drawer.

Not ideal, but it's how I've dealt with it.

It's worth noting that this only happens with groups.  If you have nothing but folders involved, then they don't collapse.
