TextMate's LaTeX bundle can't find my bib files when using the  
citation completion commands. It returns the error, "Can't find any  
files named 'bibname'", where bibname is the name of my bib file. The  
bib files are in a local directory, ~/Documents/bibs. There is a  
symbolic link to this directory in ~/Library/texmf/bibtex/bib. Doing  
kpsewhich -show-path=bib returns

TM_LATEX_BIB is set to /Users/kjhealy/Documents/bibs. Latex documents  
will compile happily (using latexmk.pl) within TextMate, including  
their bibliographies. It's just the citation completion within  
documents that isn't working. My Latex bundle and Support folder are  
at revision 8696. I'm running Leopard (10.5.1) and  TextMate 1.5.7  

Any hints on why this isn't working as it should?
