June 27, 2011, at 14:31 UTC by Jan - Instruments.app from Xcode 4 also grabs ⌃⎋ (bundle menu)
Added lines 20-21:
    Instruments.app from Xcode 4 also grabs ⌃⎋ (bundle menu) per default. It does not even have to be running, just having Xcode 4 installed seems to be enough. The solution is to launch Instruments.app and change the default key combo for "Toggle Front Document Trace" in Preferences to something else.

    If the key is ⌘[ and [ is achieved with ⌥8 on your keymap then the problem is likely that the system has the system-wide Zoom On/Off key bound to ⌥⌘8 — you can go to System Preferences → Keyboard & Mouse and adjust/disable the Zoom On/Off key.

 1. Keys listed in the menu which do not have the ⌘ modifier are not resolved by the OS X menu system, so instead rely on also having an entry in TextMate’s key bindings file. If you create your own key bindings file in `~/Library/Application Support/TextMate` then it completely eclipse the default version. In this case you should copy over the bindings from the default file.

 2. You accidentally assigned the key to a bundle item in the bundle editor. This one isn’t always easy to locate, but here are a few ways:
     1. Go to `~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles`. This contains all your customizations, so removing that folder and either relaunching TextMate or selecting Reload Bundles should get rid of customizations done to key bindings.
     2. Select Bundles → TextMate → Show Keyboard Shortcuts. This gives you a list of all key bindings in all bundles.
