Hi,

and you are sure that this is a bug ? \[DifferentialD] is an
operator for the total differential and has a build-in meaning
while \[CapitalDifferentialD] has no build in meaning and AFIK
the only use of this character is in a Feynman path integral
to denote "differential like" integration variable over the path.
Since Mathematica can't do path integrals (jet) it is an ordianry
letter like \[Alpha], ... and can combined with other unicode
letters.

Regards
   Jens
