So all these windows open on the screen which does *not* have the  
currently active window?

They should, by default, open at the screen with the active window.  
But they will also remember window position.

Is your setup that you have a laptop, and often work on just this  
laptop, then sometimes, you connect a secondary screen, drag the  
TextMate window to the secondary screen, and now need to do the same  
for all the other windows? If so, it is likely because they remember  
their position, and re-use them.

Maybe this can be fixed by going to the system preferences and  
configure the external screen to be the “main” screen (i.e. have the  
origin of the coordinate system), when connected.
