[TxMt] Latex Bundle Strangeness

Greetings, I recently purchased a new computer and am migrating over  
to it. I use latex extensively within textmate, and I have never had a  
problem with the latex bundle before. With the new machine, I can type  
'pdflatex file.tex' at the command line and it prepares the file in  
less than 1 sec. If I run "Typeset & View (PDF)", it takes over 30  
seconds before the process begins, then it successfully generates the  

For completeness:

1) Edit latex file
2) Select "Typeset & View (PDF)"
3) Status window appears with spinning wheel
... 30 seconds pass ...
4) latex console output appears in the window: no errors
5) PDF appears in preview

What I cannot figure out is why this initial delay is occurring. The  
same delay occurs with bibtex from textmate as well.

Any suggestions? I confirmed the preferences, etc. and nothing is out  
of the ordinary. Again, running the command line has no delay in  
starting either pdflatex or bibtex.

Thanks for your help,
