I didn't have TM_LATEX_BIB set originally --- I put that in during my  
efforts to solve the problem. Now I've removed it again. BIBINPUTS was  
not set in TextMate. I set it and it returns '/Users/kjhealy/Library/ 
texmf/bibtex/bib:' from within TM. (This is the correct path.) But my  
problem persists. On the MacBook Pro, when I use the keyboard shortcut  
the menu pops up asking to create a label or a citation, and when I  
then select citation, nothing happens except the pointer changes to a  
cross. Same goes for the option when selected through the bundle menu.  
On the G5 desktop (which I currently don't have access to) the same  
thing was happening except I was getting the "Can't find any files  
named 'bibname'" tooltip.
