The file to edit is ~/Library/TeXShop/Keyboard/autocompletion.plist
It contains lots and lots of things that you may not wish to have 
automatically replaced when using XeTeX. I pruned mine to the bare 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" 
<plist version="1.0">

Are you using the utf8accents package? Look for it on the "Related 
Pages" section of the XeTeX website. I'm not sure, but I believe it 
will fix your problem too.

another unrelated message and deleting the text, since mail apps with 
threading features get confused.
