Change the version to 1.5.6 in the 1.5.7 download link.

But learning that you open TextMate by opening the document file, I am  
99% certain that the system did actually run the version on your Time  
Machine backup, and the backed up version was then target for the  

Running the wrong version of TextMate happens all the time for me  
(since I generally have 3 versions installed), even when TextMate is  
already running, the system will sometimes find another version to  
run, when I open a document -- and I have heard numerous complaints  
from people about Leopard running (mostly trashed) applications from  
their Time Machine backup.

Resetting launch services works temporarily (as Rob suggests), the  
problem is that if you open a folder with applications, the system  
will cache the info from these applications, and it seems that for  
file types where you did not explicitly assign an application, it is  
the last one seen, which can handle the type, that gets to handle it.
