Do you mean that it will not refresh the pdf after changes have  
happened to it and you have recompiled, or that if you compile a  
completely different file? If it is the former, then it is  
Preview.app's fault, and the only solutions I can think of would  
involve using AppleScript and slightly hacking Preview.app to allow  
AppleScript to drive it.

I would suggest using a different previewer, and in particular  
TeXniscope. Or you could use the TeXShop previewer, though that does  
not do pdfsync with TextMate (to my knowledge).

If the problem is that it will not show you a completely different  
file, then this is unexpected behavior and we can see what steps to  
take to troubleshoot it.
