Sorry, yes, this is 1.x.  The process you describe fails when I try it. 
Here's the details:
I'm dragging-and-dropping the template from a copy of TM 1.5.10 (1623) on
OS X 10.6.8 to the Desktop, then copying it to my Mac mini running 10.7.4
and TM 1.5.10 (1631).  Double-clicking the template gives the following

"Sorry, but it is not currently possible to install templates this way.
You will need to manually move/copy the template file to the bundle in
which it should be installed."

The manual method is probably the one you've just suggested.  However, I
have no Bundles folder in ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate. I have
no folder at all there.
