[TxMt] Site license inconvenience

Hi, sorry if this is a well-known issue.

I purchased a site license and installed TextMate on my classroom machines. The students will be using network accounts.

What I discovered, to my dismay, is that registering TextMate using the local admin account does not unlock it for a network user. (When I logged on using a test student account, I needed to register again.)

This will be, to put it mildly, a pain in the ass, as students are not assigned to a particular machine.

Is there a way around this? I don't immediately see where TextMate maintains license information locally.
