Have you ever built TM from the source? I’ve had some forks that I’ve
played with that sometimes get picked up as the real TextMate. That, iirc,
has lead to multiple TM’s in my dock.

I forget if they were both active, or if starting one focused the already
opened version.

It's not something I can reproduce, it's just something I notice happening
occasionally (and seems to coincide with a live update, but not 100% sure)

I'll gather some more info next time I see it
