I am a little confused as to what exactly you tried, and I forgot what  
your exact goal is. I would suggest you reset everything to defaults,  
then record macros for the desired actions and then bind the keys you  
want to these macros afterwards.

The key bindings stuff is tricky because TM has its own file¹ which is  
also referenced, and because control + arrow keys actually is buggy  
(according to me, by design according to Apple), so these events are  
resolved differently (and often wrongly) — TextMate does what it can  
to workaround it, maybe your setup has exposed an unhandled case,  
wouldn’t think so though.
