I am getting errors when running "mate" only while logged in as admin. Things work fine when logged in as a regular user. This involves textmate 1.5.9 on OSX 10.6 and I am seeing the issue with both of my macs (mid-2007 imac and feb 2008 mbp). I did not encounter this prior to the Snow Leopard and textmate 1.5.9 upgrades.
Starting bash, then doing a "login admin" and then attempting to edit produces this error:
mate test.txt Tue Sep 8 03:09:15 Mothra-2.local mate <Error>: kCGErrorFailure: Set a breakpoint @ CGErrorBreakpoint() to catch errors as they are logged. _RegisterApplication(), FAILED TO establish the default connection to the WindowServer, _CGSDefaultConnection() is NULL.
the console is hung at this point until you hit Control-Z
Trying again with sudo changes the error to this:
sudo mate test.txt 2009-09-08 03:00:06.946 mate[17053:e07] An uncaught exception was raised 2009-09-08 03:00:06.949 mate[17053:e07] *** -[NSArray objectAtIndex:]: index (-1 (or possibly larger)) beyond bounds (0) 2009-09-08 03:00:06.950 mate[17053:e07] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSRangeException', reason: '*** -[NSArray objectAtIndex:]: index (-1 (or possibly larger)) beyond bounds (0)' *** Call stack at first throw: ( 0 CoreFoundation 0x926b258a __raiseError + 410 1 libobjc.A.dylib 0x965a6f49 objc_exception_throw + 56 2 CoreFoundation 0x926f63f1 -[__NSArray0 objectAtIndex:] + 209 3 mate 0x000026e3 0x0 + 9955 4 mate 0x000037af 0x0 + 14255 5 mate 0x0000261a 0x0 + 9754 6 mate 0x00002535 0x0 + 9525 ) Trace/BPT trap
the console is not hung after this error message
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Mate uses distributed objects for the communication. The sender and receiver need to be in the same “window session” or similar for this to work, and OS X has incrementally made the definition of that more narrow — in the future it will use sockets to avoid these problems.
