Windshield cracking

I thought I saw something on these threads one time about alot of people having problems with their windshield cracking.
I ask cause the other morning I came out and noticed a crack across the windsheild with no apparent damage from the road. If someone could please post a link to this thread if they know of it or share their experience. The thread I read was convincing enough to have the dealer warranty it, but I am worried about my own claim and want to have something to back it up.

There is a TSB for that if there is no damage from rocks.

Windshield cracks caused by an impact from a foreign object; (i.e. stone) are often difficult
to identify. The following assessment should be used to verify the presence of an impact
chip on the crack.
If no obvious impact chip is present, run a ball point pen along the crack and feel for a
slight drop or pit in the glass. If a slight drop or pit in the glass is present, this indicates a
small impact caused the crack. If the molding contains a witness mark or dent from an
impact, inspect under the molding for an impact chip in the same manner.
Cracks caused by an impact are not warrantable.

When I had my windshield replaced I was told that the dealer recommends that the glass is pushed all the way up as close as you can get it to the top of the frame. I would think that would be a problem when the temp changes and metal and glass expand at different speeds. But hey “they” know better than me.
