Right now TextMate will do something like log an error about an unexpected bundle and try to match it up with a bundle in the index because it thinks that the local index is corrupt (e.g. crash after installing bundle but before updating local index).

Which it shouldn’t — in the future the bundle management is likely to be improved to explicitly list managed, third party, and custom bundles, additionally which of the first two have local changes, with some new options like ability to revert local changes, re-apply a customizations to a git clone, etc. — such functionality is dependent on the user not fooling TextMate into thinking third party bundles are managed or similar.
