I'm not quite sure I understand what you're asking.  Cmd+O is just a  
generic open command.  The directory you are shown is the last  
directory that TextMate remembers you opening something from.  If  
you've already got a project open (re: "which is often in a  
subdirectory of the project") why not use the file drawer to just  
click the file?
