As mentioned by David Jack Olrik, you should go to System  
Preferences, Keyboard & Mouse and then on the Keyboard Shortcuts page  
make an entry for TextMate with menu title Next File Tab.

The distinction might not be easy for non-Cocoa programmers, but  
generally menu keys should be bound this way (and not through the key  
bindings file).

As an alternative, one can use Menu Master [1] ($10), which makes it  
_very_ easy to change menu keys (basically just hover the mouse over  
the key equivalent and press the new one.

Kind regards Allan
