You can use Apple's first party tools. If you're using Xcode, then in the menu bar go to Xcode-> Open Developer Tools -> More Developer Tools -> then download the xcode graphics tools for your OS. Open the .dmg and click OpenGL Profiler. Copy the executable to the list box, then in the menu select Views->Breakpoints then check "Break on GL Error". Back in the main view, highlight the app so that "launch" is no longer grayed out, and hit that. This is how I debug my apps, and it's pretty good.
