[TxMt] Re: [TM2] Files on remote mounts not being refreshed - workaround?

Okay thanks, but what about TextMate opening files directly that have been mounted locally, not using rmate? Is it possible to reload the file without a close/re-open cycle? There is a reload command for the file listing on the browser, but not for files. 

Optimally I'd like a contextual menu item to Reload when right clicking in the buffer window. Tab too would be nice but I'd be happy with the buffer.
