Yes. This is a well known problem. Read some of the threads here and you will see. Are you still under warranty? And even if your not, many have had positive experiences getting this fixed/replaced... barring any signs of neglect/abuse.
You should take it to your local Apple retailer and politely explain your problem. Many here have had luck with this issue as it is a well known and common one.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 17, 2008 11:14 PM (in response to aBaker300)I had the same problem with my white macbook a few ago. I noticed that suddenly there is this hairline crack on the extreme left side of the case where the wrist pad meets the base. This was about 2.5in. long. Another one was starting at the extreme right about .5in. I called our IT equipment supplier who immediately contacted apple. Luckily they have no problem replacing the casing since my MB is still under warranty. Moral lesson, it is good to have the applecare extended warrnty. You will really never know when you would be needing it. Had my machine been without warranty apple is charging me a whopping 10K php for replacement and service. Honestly though, if this is a common problem for the hard plastic casing, which it is, then this is a design flaw and apple should change or repair it within or outside warranty.Macbook, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, iMac 20, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
