I think TextMate is failing to update its understanding of where the cursor is, when it (TextMate) is brought to the front.

Looking more closely, I think the problem is that the tooltip is appearing at the insertion point rather than the cursor, if the insertion point happens to be visible on the screen. So there is a serious inconsistency here, since sometimes it's at the cursor and sometimes it's not.

Here's a screen shot; the tooltip is at the top but the cursor is at the bottom:
