Too many variables involved here for me to really follow it, but the default .tm_properties both have:

    [ text ]
    softWrap = true


    [ .git/COMMIT_EDITMSG ]
    softWrap = true

The latter is redundant since it is covered by the first, and first even has higher priority.

I’d suggest you remove these defaults from TextMate.app/…/Default.tmProperties and then try see if that helps.

When there are issues with settings, it’s generally better to _remove_ settings than add new (at least as part of the troubleshooting), as it quickly becomes rather complex with the scoped settings, the local .tm_properties, the memorized file type settings (in user defaults), a.s.o.
