And you access that Help via the action menu at the bottom of  
TextMate's window, in the LaTeX submenu, right?  I occasionally forget  
about that when searching the application's Help.

I just tried this (type "sub", hit cmd-shift-], in a newly created  
document via the default LaTeX template.  I get

/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles/Latex.tmbundle/Support/ 
lib/config_helper.rb:18:in /bin/bash: expand_path: couldnt: command  
not found~/Library/Preferences/ 
com.macromates.textmate.latex_config.plist' (ArgumentError)
     from /Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles/Latex.tmbundle/ 
Support/lib/config_helper.rb:18:in /bin/bash: -c: line 0: unexpected  
EOF while looking for matching `''
/bin/bash: -c: line 2: syntax error: unexpected end of fileload'
     from /tmp/temp_textmate.uH8iTJ:3

Any ideas?  If I do this in an empty (unsaved) document set to LaTeX  
via the file type popup, I just get a hang and have to use cmd-. to  
kill a couple of shell processes.  This is with latest TM and svn  
checkout to /Library/Application Support/TextMate.
