What font are you using?

TextMate itself is using ATSUI to render text but the tool tip is via  
NSLayoutManager, so different code is involved, which means a corrupt  
font cache¹ or font/rendering attributes may affect it differently.

I know the regular ProFont has some ligature features that affet the  
tool tip (but not TextMate itself).
