I will bet a dollar to a donut :) that your Mac is running OS X 10.8.2.

Based on prior reports, we've determined, via in-house testing and
correspondence with the folks at Panic, that this problem is due to an
event-handling bug in OS X 10.8.2 (which both Panic and we have reported to

Due to the nature of this issue, there is no direct workaround; however,
you can still do the following:

  * use Transmit's "Mount as Disk" capability to attach the server as
    a locally-mounted volume, from which you can open & edit files.

  * open remote files directly into BBEdit via File -> Open from
    FTP/SFTP Server.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and hopefully Apple will correct this
bug in a future OS update.
