Was that while saving a file over a network mounted drive?

When I started to use setxattr() for metadata I got a lot of reports  
of kernel panics when saving to AFP mnted volumes -- turns out the fs  
driver is buggy. I introduced a workaround for that, but since then  
I've had two reports of kernel panics from setxattr(), so it seems my  
workaround wasn't a complete fix.

To disable the use of setxattr() execute (while TM is not running):

    defaults write com.macromates.textmate  
OakDocumentDisableFSMetaData -bool true

I'll look into having TM disable metadata automatically only for  
drives that look like network mounts.
