I've got that installed, but I don't see how that applies. I'm not
having a problem editing the snippet itself. (Using Edit in TextMate
seems like overkill, and just adds steps when editing small snippets
or commands.) The problem is switching to a document to *use* (test)
the snippet, and the changes I've made to the snippet don't take
effect unless I click outside of the text field, or press Control-Tab
to move focus to a different text field, etc.
