The keyboard shortcut Cmd-Opt-O is supposed to

Most common culprit is a bundle shortcut overriding the app shortcuts. Try
this: Press Control-Command-T, in the little magnifying glass drop down choose "Key
Equivalent" and then type Cmd-Opt-O, and see if any results show up. This will be
language-scope-aware, so do this in the files you normally work in.
Another suggestion might be to use System Preferences to assign it to something else, and
see if that works.
Dru, thank you, your suggestion led me to find the interfering culprit.
I have something called 'sidenote', whose shortcut for unfurling from
the left screen edge was just the shortcut that Textmate uses for the
insert/overwrite toggle. Once I changed that one to a different
shortcut, Textmate's toggle began to work.
This prompts two questions:
1 - how does one alter Textmate's shortcut keys?
2 - is there an OSX utility to list all of a system's shortcuts to help
the user avoid conflicts?
#2 may be asking too much, tho.
