This seems to indicate you have an old version of the TextMate bundle (which contains the installer + the Edit in TextMate input manager). Unless you have made changes to it, you can revert by deleting ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles/TextMate.tmbundle

The proper location of the Input Manager should be: /Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Bundles/TextMate.tmbundle/Support/Edit in TextMate (if you have latest TextMate, as would be the case if you just re-downloaded, it should still be here, regardless of the local version of this bundle eclipsing the newer installer).

So the steps to manually install would be:

# 1. Remove all local input managers
rm -rf ~/Library/InputManagers

# 2. Create InputManagers folder
sudo mkdir /Library/InputManagers

# 3. Copy the input manager to /Library
sudo cp -pR /Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Bundles/TextMate.tmbundle/Support/Edit\ in\ TextMate /Library/InputManagers

# 4. Ensure everything is owned by root
sudo chown -R root:admin /Library/InputManagers

# 5. Set permissions properly on system wide input managers
sudo chmod -R go-w /Library/InputManagers
