I just tried mate .  and whilst TM started it then went into  
application not responding, a force quit returned this to the terminal:

2008-05-16 11:44:06.624 mate[883:10b] Exception raised during posting  
of notification.  Ignored.  exception: 'connection went invalid while  
waiting for a reply'  invoked observer method: '*** -[OakLaunchHelper  
didLaunchTextMate:]'  observer: 0x1218a0  notification name:  

I'm using
   Version 1.5.7 (1464)


   System Version:	Mac OS X 10.5.2 (9C7010)
   Kernel Version:	Darwin 9.2.2

mate myfile.txt  opens a new file, just fine.
