It happens to me all the time when TextMate is already open, and I have iTerm2 in a drop-down window from the top of the screen. I do `mate .` or `git commit` and I have to resign focus of iTerm2 before TextMate is launched / switched to.

This actually sounds exactly like the problem I was trying to address with this PR. I'm glad someone else is experiencing it!

Hello list,

when opening (existing) files from using the `mate` command, it occasionally (but not always) takes a fairly long time (more than 5secs) to open the file in TextMate. TM in all these instances is already running, but doesn't necessarily have any open windows.

I have also encountered this.  But it is very rare.  I can recall less than 5 times total and I use mate from the command line a lot.  For the record I use iTerm rather than terminal, but I don't think that is relevant.
