If you haven't figured it out yet, the autocompletion list is in
~/Library/TeXShop/Keyboard/autocompletion.plist. Make a copy of the file
(for safety) and open it in an editor that understands UTF-8 or the plist
editor. You'll see lines like


and you just delete those that are of no interest to you. Save it as
UTF-8!!! I'd change the name of the original file, name the copy
autocompletion.plist, open TeXShop and test, test, test.

Good Luck,
