In our special case this would mean that not all conditions of the 
while-loop are triggered, right? These conditions test for the existence 
of a variable start token and of an end token after that. Looking at the 
unit tests I think that all possible combinations of existing and 
missing start and end tokens would be covered.

Is it possible that because of the short cut evaluation of boolean 
expressions some pathes are never executed? Just a guess.
