No, just ordinary hand debug with edebug as an auxiliary tool. :-)

A possible advantage for me is that I encountered a similar example
before and saved it for future debug:


%%% Local Variables:
%%% mode: latex
%%% TeX-master: t
%%% End:
>From Jean's example, I learned that unclosed dollar sign is involved in
this symptom. So I suspected that dollar fontification causes some error
to interrupt font lock, ending up with partial fontification.
(1) After some unsuccessful tries&errors, I put the point just before
    the last $ in the Jean's example and did
    M-: (font-latex-match-dollar-math (point-max)) RET
(2) Emacs signaled end-of-buffer error. So I could be confident that the
    problem hides in `font-latex-match-dollar-math' or the vicinity of
(3) I enabled edebug for `font-latex-match-dollar-math' and tried
    M-: (font-latex-match-dollar-math (point-max)) RET
    after putting the point before the last $ again.
(4) Then I noticed that the second call to
    `font-latex-find-dollar-math' returns t, which should be nil because
    this last $ is unclosed in the buffer.
(5) I looked at `font-latex-find-dollar-math' carefully and noticed that
    it returns false t if LIMIT argument exceeds end of buffer.
