By the way, using Ihor's suggestion, I was able to debug the issue. There is 
nothing wrong with my configuration. The issue is that the font cannot deal 
with that symbol, and LaTeX just skips it. Still, it would be convenient not to 
have to create a separate .tex to debug the preview. Thanks!

not saying that I have a test case), some times the PDF is produced correctly,
but the preview isn't. Also, in the past, I have noticed that the (failed) .tex
for a (wrong) preview is slightly different. When the equation is definitely
wrong, I get to see the .tex in =/tmp/=, but the Emacs + LaTeX configuration is
so versatile that I get an output even if I type =\({µp\)= (which is a good
feature in most cases). Right now, 

1. setting (setq org-latex-pdf-process '("cp %f /tmp/debug.tex"))
2. reloading Org (org-reload) and
3. creating a new Org buffer 
4. preview or export to PDF 

does not produce =/tmp/debug.tex=. I hope that I was able to describe my
situation. Right now, I will look into =org-latex-packages-alist= again. I want
to say that I appreciate Emacs and Org very much. Thank you.

Currently, no. Could you elaborate on why you’re interested in this
