The first time you save the new grammar, it is given a name. So 
generally when creating new items, name them before saving them.

The reason it does not update the name on disk is because it can cause 
version control issues.

It should be possible to manually rename in Finder or a terminal 
(TextMate does consider it the same, but if you have the fs-events 
issue/bug, you should delete the bundle index in Library/Caches after 
renaming it and then relaunch TextMate).
