There are plenty of C-36s on the market - the cracks most likely are from residual stress caused by the repair being stronger than the surrounding areas. If I was you - I would skip on this unless it is a deal that can not be beat. A good surveyor will probably answer your questions more directly on the actual probably causes of the stress fractures - but just the cursory info - a five inch crack is not "normal" (small less than an inch crazing yes).
