My Finder does not do that.

That would be option double-click (or option single-click).

Option double-click in Finder hides Finder (before launching the new 
app) and option single-click the Dock, will hide the current app, before 
moving focus to the one clicked.

So TM2 seems rather consistent with system behavior.

You can’t disable it (without building your own version of TextMate).

The best solution, after you closed stuff you did not mean to close, is 
using ⌘T. This has the files sorted after “last recently used” and 
you can multi-select, so shift arrow-down a few times and press return, 
and it should re-open your most recently used files.
