I think I know what you're talking about. My AAR - after I took it apart to adjust the thing for the cold idle I wanted - some time much later I was getting a really high idle just out of the blue. Turned out that the hex you're referring to was leaking air (as in drawing air in). Just gooped a bunch of sealent stuff around it to stop the leak.
The smoke coming out is weird, though. Is it really smoke, or just some vapors? Does it smell like burned electrical, or oil? Ya gotta stick your nose down there next time and take a good snort.
Is your cold idle working ok (i.e, does it drop down when the engine's hot or is it staying high, indicative of the heating element gone south)?
