Well, it's broken now. :)  The last line is broken.  The -e flag is for  
passing a command to osascript, but you haven't stated what the command  
is.  The fact that you haven't closed the string with another "'" means  
that it will sit there waiting for you to tell it what command to run.

Go to the command prompt, type "osascript -e '" and press return, you'll  
see it just waits for you to give it a command (it prompts you for it with  
a '> ' prompt). (hit ctrl-c to break).

I suspect at some point your script file got damaged... maybe you want  

osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

(found on http://macromates.com/textmate/manual/bundles )
