There isn’t any inode caching per se, however, when opening a file,
TextMate will check if you already have that file open, and this check
does involve looking at inodes.
So a possible explanation for your issue _could_ be that your virtual
file system reuses inodes, and that you open a file that uses an inode
of something you previously opened (but which had a different path), and
is still open somehow, e.g. in a background tab.
Perhaps you can ask the creators of the virtual file system that you are
using, how they deal with inodes, i.e. if there is a high chance of
inode re-use. If they say no, my theory is invalid, but if they say yes,
then perhaps there is something to it.
