The problem is with the Python functions used to read the preferences  
file, it can give the error when the preferences file contain certain  
characters, and since your preferences file stores a lot of things  
like recent search strings etc. it can happen that a problematic  
character enteres the file.

That said, if you go to TextMate → Preferences → Software Update  
and switch to Cutting Edge, it has a fix for the Python preferences
