Okay, here it is I think. Whether the LaTeX code is typeset within LyX 
or not does not matter, so it seems that the code generated by LyX is 
the problem.

As I said, I knew that putting tracked changed into a TeX Code inset is 
asking for trouble. However, I just missed this one when copy and 
pasting a whole passage with tracked changed enabled.

Still it surprises me that there is no error message or anything. Maybe 
a problem with the error handling in the booktabs package?
