I'm not seeing the behavior you describe, but this may help me to figure out
what is going on.

Run the following command in your terminal window.

defaults write com.macromates.textmate latexDebug 1

Then run typeset & view again from TextMate.  This may help identify where
the delay is coming from.    Please send me the output in an offlist email
and if you can, identify where the delays are.

After you have run typeset & view with debug on you can turn it off again

defaults write com.macromates.textmate latexDebug 0
