Hm, it should work at this point. Ok, do the following please:
First, make sure you have updated both the Latex bundle and the  
global support directory in Application Support/TextMate/Support.
Then open the bundle editor and change the text of the bibliography  
completion command to say "exit" wherever it currently says  
"exit_discard". This will print for us some errors we could do  
something with. Run the command again and let me know what those  
errors are.
Also, tell me the structure of your file directory, and where the  
bibliography file you are trying to access is on your computer, and  
why do you expect the program to find it (is it a \bibliography entry  
in the current file, or in TM_LATEX_MASTER, is it pointed to by  

Also please send the output produced if from the command line you run:
kpsewhich -show-path=bib

Then we'll take it from there.

This was chosen after some discussion, and it is supposed to be  
indicative of what the command does, same as the shift-ctrl-<  
shortcut for tags in HTML. I am not entirely happy with it either,  
but we couldn't think of a good global alternative that would work  
well for people. Suggestions are welcome of course.
