very odd or normal?

ive spent some time on this site and haven't seen any one posting something like this: about 2 days ago i get in my jeep to go work like every morning, but this time i noticed a crack on the inside on the door, just to the front and right above the door latch. after getting to work i noticed the same thing, same place and the same length on the passenger side door. my first thought was the cold did it. but it wasn't that cold the night before and i have had the jeep in freezing weather and no problems. has anybody else experienced this or suggestions. is there any way to fix it other than replacing the whole door panel? i can post pics tomorrow

One of the known weak spots on TJ Door Panels. I have one on the drivers side and just starting to get one on the pass side.

Seems pretty common. Drilling has been suggested to stop the cracking, but they usually don't get longer than a couple inches anyway:
