Here's a screenshot from my machine:
Make sure both the latex file and the .ctags.tmcodebrowser are saved.
Other than that, it should really work. Perhaps restart textmate.

No need to copy the entire latex syntax. You can just tell your
syntax to import the latex syntax. In fact the latex syntax includes
the tex syntax this way. The last pattern says:
{	include = 'source.tex'; },

You'll just have to do a similar thing with latex:
{	include = text.latex'; },
Then before that you add your own things. If the other maintainers
don't object, and if there are enough users using koma, we could add
those as well in the official syntax. I just don't want to add
support for any little things that any bundle offers. Also, the idea
of TextMate is that you customize things to your liking. For instance
in this case, you can just add them to your local copy, and then
share it with people. For extra sectioning commands, all you have to
do is change the line:

begin = '((\\(?:(?:sub)*section|chapter|paragraph|part))(\*?)(?:(\
[)[^\[]*?(\]))??(\{))';

to

that should do it. Let me know if you need any help with any of the
other modifications needed.

My pleasure. Been there, still am in many ways.
