I am by no means a LaTeX expert -0 so I might be wrong, but - the LaTeX error messages are already quite cryptic, and the error you quote (Missing } inserted' error for 'l.1052') means that the missing "}" is inserted in this line - where it is actually missing and what is causing this does not even LaTeX know - so there is no chance that LyX will be able to tell you.
