Spontaneous Windshield Breakage?!?

I don't know if such breakage is NORMAL, but it also happened to my '90
V8.  About 9 months after I had the windshield replaced, the glass
developed a crack coming down from the top edge, a little towards the
passenger side from middle.  I had it replaced by the same shop, then no
problems for the next five years.

I have two theories:  1) The glass was put in crooked, and cracked under
a torque from a bump or whatever.  2) The glass got a nick on the edge
during installation/transport, and the crack grew from that.
