Here's what you should do and you should be happier too: \be+TAB to get \begin{; definit+ESC and choose definition; close the } and then press TAB again and you should get \end{definition} so you have nothing to add.

That has to do with Apple's Completion mechanism and I have no idea how that works! I try to avoid it! :-)
