Have seen this in testing myself, not sure there's an easy solution besides
modifying the code to print the resultant filter after it's been modified,
something like this in the iptables_manager _apply() code:

     new_filter = self._modify_rules(current_lines,
+    for f in enumerate(new_filter):
+        print f
     args = ['%s-restore' % (cmd)]

You'll get a lot of extra output in the logs but should be able to find the bad
