This indicates you messed up your PATH (or deleted /usr/bin/ruby).

Try uncheck PATH, although it does contain /usr/bin… did you delete ruby? Can you try ‘/usr/bin/ruby -v’ in Terminal?

TM_RUBY is ONLY for user scripts¹. The error you get is TextMate’s bundled commands which use the ruby in your PATH, it can’t use TM_RUBY because not all our commands have the required encoding boilerplate to satisfy ruby 1.9’s encoding madness.
We could replace all the ‘env ruby’ calls to /usr/bin/ruby, because that is really what we want, but a) some bundles are actually used on other platforms where ruby might not be in /usr/bin and b) historically we have supported earlier versions of OS X that only had ruby 1.6 *iff* the user installed ruby 1.8 and updated PATH so TM commands would find it.
¹ Although it wasn’t until recently we actually removed TM_RUBY from most bundles.
