I’ve observed the following (which is from memory, so may not be 100% accurate), I’ll try
to take notes from now on.

People with this issue, can you let me know:
• What is the earliest version of macOS where you noticed the issue?
I’m confident of it happening back to macOS 10.12 at least, not sure about earlier.
• Is TextMate hidden when the problem happens?
I think yes, so either no open windows or all of them hidden. Not completely sure about
this though. TM is indicated as running by the Dock (via the dot), but usually doesn’t
have any open windows (at least on the current desktop).
• Is it likely that the file does open in TextMate
and the delay is related to unhiding TextMate (or bringing it to front)?
It seems to. But at least for me both the window appearing and bringing it to the front
both (which I can’t really separate) happens after the delay (or immediately after I
manually re-activate TM via the Dock for example.

when opening (existing) files from Terminal.app using the `mate` command, it occasionally

TM in all these instances is already running, but doesn't necessarily have any open
This is for small files (e.g. 30 short lines of code), so it cannot be the file size
making a difference. If I open the files directly through TM's File -> Open...
menu, no such delay happens.
During such a delay, if I click on the already running TM in the dock to activate it, the
desired document that `mate` is trying to open immediately appears.
If I close the document and retry immediately afterwards, then no delay seems to exist
for a while. Swap also doesn't seem to be an issue, my swapfile has size 0 on a 32GB
Macbook Pro, with 16GB free. If TM hasn't been activated in a while (even though
supposedly running according to the Dock dot) then this seems more likely.
It seems to be the communication / connecting between mate and TM that causes this delay
somehow. I've tried removing and reinstalling the `mate` command.
This is on TextMate version 2.0-rc.10, but is not new behavior, I've seen this for
quite some time.
Does that sound familiar to anyone or have any diagnosis tips?
