For example, on the non-working machine, there is an explicit check for kpsewhich, but not on the other one. And, indeed, if I look at the files in ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Pristine\ Copy/Bundles/LaTeX.tmbundle, I do find that they are from 2010!

thank you for the detailed description of your problem. TextMate stores all managed bundles – those installed via `Preferences→Bundles` – inside 

	~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles/

. I think you can solve your issue using the following steps:

1. Move all version of `LaTeX.tmbundle` outside of `Managed/Bundles` into the Trash. To locate these bundles you can use the following command inside Terminal:

   mdfind -name '"latex.tmbundle"c' | grep -iE '\.tmbundle$'

2. Restart TextMate (`Ctrl` + `⌘` + `Q`)

Hope this helps. If not, then please just ask again.
