AFAICS there are three major techniques addressed:

1) bibisecting the problem

2) reducing the document

3) stack tracing with debugging symbols

Techniques 1 + 3 are described in detail in the wiki:

1) https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bibisect

3) https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Development/How_to_debug
   and also for Windows:

Technique 2, reducing the document, should be easy to do IMHO (though
tedious for big/complex documents): just remove all the objects from the
document one by one and at each step look if the problematic behavior is
still reproducible. As a first test, you can copy all contents from the
problematic document into a new document to exclude that there is some
(old/inherited) flaw in the document structure.
