I can't reproduce that problem myself. The keychain is manipulated using the "security" command line tool. Anything unusual about your password? Everything set up right in your blog file? Take a look at the file in ~/Library/Preferences/com.macromates.textmate.blogging.txt. You'll see something like:

	blogname	http://username@hostname.com/wordpress/xmlrpc.php

You can test the retrieval of the password using this command:

	security find-internet-password -g -a "username" -s "hostname.com" -p "/wordpress/xmlrpc.php" -r http

(change the parameters above to match your blog configuration of course)

If all is well, the output should include a line like this:

	password: "yourpassword"

if it doesn't, that's why you're getting asked for your password all the time.

You can also test password insertion. Try this:

	security add-internet-password -a "username" -s "hostname.com" -r "http" -p "/wordpress/xmlrpc.php" -w "yourpassword"

Note any errors this may produce once you change those to the actual values for your blog.

My best guess is that your password contains a special character (perhaps a quote character?) that should be handled better, but isn't now.
