It didn't crash for me, only these modules were not offered as
completions. Maybe the Mac cannot create files with non-printable
characters in the name?

Anyway:

It seems the special character comes from the HTML doc, so it's
probably a bug in the official documentation.

Here's a quick fix to filter out this character from the module name
before storing it:

--- esense-1.3/esense.erl       2005-06-06 08:01:54.000000000 +0200
+++ esense/esense.erl   2005-06-08 12:29:59.029718144 +0200
@@ -50,7 +50,9 @@
 
 parse_html({'div', _, Text},  {module_name, Module}) ->
     ModuleName = string:strip(remove_newlines(string:substr(Text, 2,
length(Text) - 2))),
-    {next_function, Module#module{name = ModuleName}};
+    %% some module names contain strange characters (ASCII 173)
+    %% these are removed before storing the module name
+    {next_function, Module#module{name = [ C || C <- ModuleName, C /= 173 ]}};


Thanks for the bug report. This fix will be in the next release.
