>From Juanma's data, it is clear that the composition list is sometimes
created incorrectly, to include the list of all the characters in
"lambda".  The way to debug this is to catch the circumstances when
this happens.  One possible way of doing that (a.k.a. "printf
debugging") is to instrument prog--prettify-font-lock-compose-symbol
so that it logs a message with values of important variables when
the composition is incorrect, i.e. when the rule is (?l ?a ?m ?b ?d ?a).
That should give enough hints to find the villain.
