It was « \mathrm{d} », not « \textrm{d} ». AMS usergide says not to
use \text… for operator names.
I won't argue, it is a matter of taste, I was not aware that the other
way was posible. The amsmath userguide (page 23) also uses a plain d.
Actually for an upright d, amsmath « \operatorname{d} » would be
better. Or something line « \DeclareMathOperator\infvar{d} », and then
« \infvar x » instead of « dx ».
