[TxMt] Switching between bundle editor and document windows

As I've watched some of Allan's screencasts, I noticed he often  
switches between the bundle editor and a document window in order to  
try out changes to snippets, commands, etc.  It looks like he's using  
the keyboard to switch back and forth.  I know I can switch between  
windows using Command-` , but any changes I've made in the bundle  
editor's text field don't seem to take effect when I switch windows.

For example, I start editing a snippet.  I add or remove some text in  
the snippet.  Then press Command-` to switch to my document window.  I  
trigger the snippet (using tab triggers in my recent experiments), but  
I get the old contents of the snippet, without the changes I just typed.

If I click elsewhere in the bundle editor (in the list on the left, in  
the scope selector text field, etc.) before switching windows, then  
the changes I've made to the snippet take effect when I switch to my  
document window.

I've been skimming some of the archives of this list, and I've seen it  
mentioned that switching windows is supposed to commit changes to the  
text field in the bundle editor.  Which means just pressing Command-`  
to switch windows should be enough.  Am I doing something wrong?

I'm running TextMate build 1405 on Mac OS X 10.4.10 on both Intel and  
PowerPC machines.
