Okay thanks, but what about TextMate opening files directly that have been mounted
locally, not using rmate? Is it possible to reload the file without a close/re-open cycle?
There is a reload command for the file listing on the browser, but not for files.
Optimally I'd like a contextual menu item to Reload when right clicking in the buffer
window. Tab too would be nice but I'd be happy with the buffer.

[ files on remote drives ] I assume that there
simply is no file-changed event to listen for in this case
As a workaround, is there a simple way to trigger
a refresh of the TextMate buffer?
There is not — TextMate should probably check on save, and warn if the file has been
updated. But as you mention rmate, this is a bit problematic because rmate is a script
that runs on your server and simply sends the file contents to TextMate and then gets the
edited version back.
So rmate (the script running on your server) is the only one who can know when the file
has been changed, but it can’t throw up a dialog or similar on your mac.
It could make a backup of the file before overwriting though. If you know ruby you can
have a go at this yourself, we host the script here: https://github.com/textmate/rmate/
