The problem you are seeing has to do with soft-wrapped text. TextMate does lazy layout of that, which means it will first open the file, jump to the desired line (and center that) and then the (more expensive) layout kicks in, which may change document dimensions and “push” the selection out of view.

For now you can press ⌘J to re-center the selection in the window.
