Yes — this happened to me 1-2 weeks ago, never noticed it before, but it happened all the time for a day or so, until I rebooted (due to a software update), and now it does not seem to happen anymore.
I was very puzzled as to why it would happen, and I did try all sorts of things to reproduce the steps, but like you, I was unsuccessful.
One thing that was a little atypical compared to my normal workflow is that the project I worked on at the time had saveOnBlur = true in its .tm_properties and I was regularly switching away/back to TextMate. Although definitely not the first time I have used this workflow, but first time I noticed the selection issue.
FYI I am now on 10.12.3, so if you are on less, then definitely check for an OS update.
I would also suggest trying to reboot. I don’t exactly see how it could happen, but perhaps some sort of stuck modifier flag for the activation mouse event, making TextMate think there was a shift-click to extend the selection.

I sometimes experience the effect that when I go to the menu to "Save" or "Save as..." suddenly the area from the current cursor position to the very top of the document is selected. That is also distracting and somewhat annoying. :-)
