Cracks in bell housing

Pulled our trans today (FWD GM 5 speed) and found some hairline cracks in the bell housing. Not at the edges but just random spots on the inside of the case when we took it apart. Nothing that goes through case, at least as far as we can see. Has anyone seen this before? How worried should I be? Found a trans a few hours away but it will be next week until I can get there to see if it has the same issues.

I drilled a bunch of holes in bell housing for various reasons....

 

No issues...

 

I have seen bell housings with casting defects that look like cracks. 

 

Got pics?

I’ll get some when I get back to the shop tomorrow. I may have found two bellhousing!!!!!

I've also seen some crazy casting lines and flaws that I could have sworn were cracks but were not!

 

What trans is it? F23, Getrag, Isuzu?
