[DML] Window cracking problem, what gives?

I keep hearing about people with brand new windshield that are 
developing cracks around the mirror mount spot. My car has had cracks 
there since I bought it (one of the few things I missed) but so far 
they seem to be staying put.  Do I understand this correctly: you glue 
the mirror to the black spot, the window gets warm from the sun and 
causes cracks to form around the black spot because it can not expand 
with the rest of the window due to the glue???

I hear of some who use some sort of tape but the mirror falls off. I 
have even heard people say that the window cracked even after it was 
installed by a Delorean vendor. That's not cool. Is there something 
that these people are doing wrong? Believe me, if I paid $700 dollars 
for a new window to be installed and it cracked after going out in the 
sun I would be PISSED. I would like to replace my window some day and 
hope to avoid the new one developing a crack.
