TextMate refusing to launch in Lion

On occasion under OSX Lion, TextMate refuses to launch. I’ve found that simply deleting it’s pid file seems to get things working again, just open Terminal and type:

rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/TextMate.pid 

Hope this saves someone some puzzled frowning time.
