Change it to:
    . ~/.bashrc

Actually, it really should be:
    [ -f ~/.bashrc ] && . ~/.bashrc

The “. <file>” means “read instructions from file”. The current 
directory is not always your home directory when executing commands 
from TextMate (I think I document this somewhere), so you should 
provide a full path -- the “[ -f <file>]” means “true if file exists” 
and && has the short-circuit behavior you probably know from some 
programming language, i.e. if the first expression tests false (the 
file doesn't exist), the right-hand side won't be executed.

So all in all it really mens:

Kind regards Allan
