No - After a little comparison, I'd say Mail is more tolerant about  
the ever so slight moves of the cursor coming from the use of the  
Intuos tablet.  If I'm careful not to move at all in TextMate, it  
works fine, but if I just work as usual, 1 out of 3 times, it will  
deselect...  In Mail, it just works perfectly...

I pulled out my old mouse from the box to compare and, as I  
suspected, I don't have the same problem.  I guess that's enough to  
confirm my suppositions.

I suggested the idea of a pref for the app so that people who like  
the default behavior won't see any modification as a regression.
Although the problem might not effect a majority of the TextMate  
users (how many people use tablets for everything on their  
computer?), it is still a very fundamental part of the feature set.   
That's why I believe it deserves a little attention (read: "slider" :)
