People with this issue, can you let me know:
1. What is the earliest version of macOS where you noticed the issue?
2. Is TextMate hidden when the problem happens?
3. Is it likely that the file does open in TextMate and the delay is
related to unhiding TextMate (or bringing it to front)?
4. What is an “iTerm2 drop-down window”? This one is just for Jason.

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

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
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?
