Smokey diesel?

On the way back from the abortive cruiser viewing I stopped at a
predominantly Jap 2ndhand car dealer, just to have a nose about for
cruisers.
A Pajero caught my eye (yes I know, sorry!). K reg, VERY clean and tidy
inside and out, low mileage (apparently) and a low price tag so I went and
asked for the keys.
Started fine and runs fine if a little clattery, everything seems to work.
However, at idle the exhaust was a little smoky - pale grey smoke, not a lot
but noticeable. Next to nothing once the revs went up. In general is it
normal for a diesel to be smoky at idle? Or am I better leaving well alone?
Thanks
Pete

My Japonese colleague say that this is symptom of cracked block on the
Mitsubishi Pahero. Also cylinder head does crack too.
