That was silly.

I had installed at some point, but wasn't using it.

After disabling TabMate, TextMate started remembering my tab preferences again.  :)

It doesn't seem to be doing this for other file types.  Very

an experience I enjoy having spent money for.  :)

Well, clearly something is wrong. Try quit TextMate then run:

    defaults delete com.macromates.textmate OakTextViewScopedSoftTabs

To “start over” and see if that fixes it. E.g. it might be that  
something bad got into this data structure that somehow prevents  
TextMate from properly updateing it.
