Another test you can do is to get some Peppermint Oil at a health food store, get on the roof and pour it down the vent. Have someone smell around the toilet for peppermint. The oil, however, is going to cost lots more than the wax ring and Shan is right, better safe than sorry. A subfloor replacement isn't fun.
You can do it!
