After some digging I figured out why shift-ctl-rightArrow would no  
longer select to the end of line; TextMate's KeyBindings were messed  
up in recent cutting-edge releases.

First I tried following the instructions in this article to override  
key bindings, but it didn't work for some reason:

Then I figured that TextMate had its own KeyBindings file, and sure  
enough if you right-click TextMate's application icon and Show  
Package Contents, you can edit this file (drag it onto TextMate):

Replace the bindings for shift-ctl-arrows (^$\UF702 and ^$\U703) with  
these lines:

	"^$\UF702" = "moveToBeginningOfLineAndModifySelection:";		/* ctrl- 
shift-left arrow */
	"^$\UF703" = "moveToEndOfLineAndModifySelection:";		/* ctrl-shift- 
right arrow */

Save changes, relaunch TextMate, and shift-ctl-arrows work as they  
did before! No longer with shift-ctl-arrows be the same as shift-opt- 

Hope this saves somebody else some grief,
