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.
