I've been having this problem too, and deleting the various 
LaunchServices caches and plists didn't seem to help me. I had a bunch 
of old TextMate betas sitting in the trash, though, so I emptied that 
too, and that seems to have made a difference. I also tried banging my 
head against the wall in frustration, so I can't rule out that it might 
have been that instead. But I suggest you try the trash-emptying first.
