Howdy,

The nomencl manual says "Usually it is a good idea to avoid a space
or an unquoted
newline just in front of the \nomenclature command" and that seems to
be the problem here. I added a bit of text just before the
\nomenclature command and it all seemed to work fine. The extra space
between the command and the { should imply be gobbled up so shouldn't
cause any problems.

Good Luck,
