	Is this the bundle checked out from the subversion repository? If  
not, please check it out from there. (section 5.7 http://

That's hard to track down, only thing I can suggest is try to get a  
reproducible case, and then we can go from there.

Probably not atm, can you give an example of what you had in mind?

That's what prompted me to think you might have an older version of  
the bundle, the subversion version shouldn't have anymore the  
commands that made that happen (I was overriding the default TM  
commands, to make it possible to move lines without selecting them,  
but it wasn't working very well).
