You should be able to find out which TextMate.app Quicksilver  
launches by invoking Quicksilver, type enough to get TextMate  
showing, hit tab, then choose the "Reveal" action. There's no telling  
if the app you see when launching directly is the same as the app  
you'd see when using "Open With..." though.

I would unmount your Time Machine volume and run this (in Terminal):

LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -kill -r -domain local - 
domain system -domain user

That will cause your system to rebuild its database of what can open  
what. If the backed up apps aren't available, they can't be included.  
(This will also reset the system's notion of what has been launched  
before, so you will see some warnings when you open a file that  
launches an application for the "first time". This is normal and will  
only happen once per app.) Once it's done, you can remount the Time  
Machine volume, although, perhaps you should force Quicksilver to  
update its catalog as well before remounting it.

I didn't "switch" to Apple... my OS did.
