This is because TM is scanning the project tree for changes, which is 
slow on a network volume (or even locally if you have a lot of files in 
the project).  You can enable/disable this behavior per volume with the 
ReMate plugin.


    ReMate is a TextMate plugin which can be used to disable the
    automatic project tree refresh when the application regains focus.
