Peugeot 207 - Clutch

I am thinking about buying a Peugeot 207 HDI 90, but have read many reports regarding problems with clutch judder. How significant and wide spread are these reports?

I do not wish to part with money only be hit with big bills.

Almost every four-cylinder diesel from about 2002 is fitted with a dual mass flywheel to cushion torque reactions between the engine and transmission and these are failing at anything from around 40,000 miles.
