Thanks! Indeed it was a permission problem. All files were owned by root and the info.plist files for each bundle was set to 600 (non-readable for group/other). The reason the files have bad permissions is because the ‘defaults’ command is used to stamp the files in the deployment process, I wasn’t aware this command didn’t preserve permission flags — the issue affects all that run TextMate as another user than the one who installed it, so glad I found the course.
