I think more likely the link was already created, while TM was  
running from just ~/Desktop (instead of ~/Desktop/TextMate).

Though why it did not detect, that there already was a link, I don’t  
know. A quick test shows that this code works here -- but “operation  
not permitted” would indicate failure to overwrite the existing link  
(which does have to be removed for TM to be able to create a new,  
unline e.g. files, but TM should also detect when there already is one).
