Try holding option and select TextMate → Check for Test Builds.
In rc.3 the main thread is stalled until the list has updated with the
currently open files, which was indirectly the case prior to rc.1, so
rc.1 actually should load files slightly faster than before, but because
there was no stalling of main thread, it was possible to press return
before the main thread had updated the table with the open files.
