sporatic smell in bathroom... sewer gas?

We are first time home owners and so all this stuff is new to us. We started getting a yellowing of the vinyl floor in our half bathroom back by toilet (no - nobody missed the commode). Then we started noticing a smell, but it was not always there. I did have the toilet reset and the plumber said it was prob not a toilet leak because the stain did not reach the toilet base. The plumber was slightly suspecious of the sink trap but left that to us. We recently took the trap off but it was clear. It is a two story home with another full bath above the downstairs one. The tub upstairs is rarely used but I do try to run water down the drain a few times per year. The sink and toilet upstairs are used frequently. Any ideas? We will prob check the roof vent this weekend. The smell is not in any other room of the house. HELP! It is making me crazy tring to find the source of the problem.
