Of course it shouldn't crash but rather report the uncodable character.
Can you file a report wrt this?

However, if you uncheck "Literal" in the nomencl dialog, then the
character is resolved properly (this is the default mode with newer
documents; older documents are converted with Literal=true as this was
the only possibility back then). "Literal" means that you can enter
LaTeX code.
