By the way, the crack is not only located at the top of the housing(plastic) but also shows a scratch in the metal plate:

I made a poll at HTCMANIA forums about this:
8 people with a black/blue ARC with the crack at the same spot

19 people with a black/blue ARC without the crack

5 people with a silver ARC without the crack

It seems that it's not 100% sure that all of us will have this and that the silver ARC doesn't suffer it at all.

2 silver ones around the house, no cracks.
(Sorry guys/gals, I only put this up here to confirm silver housing probably doesn't suffer, not to annoy anyone).

Not in their current form but it's impossible to say if they'll get worse.
