Ever Had a Glass Chip Repair Fail?

This is the first time I have had a rock impact fixed on a windshield.

I just got a chip and crack (the crack extended about the width of a nickle) repaired and Safelite yesterday. I only looked at it from the outside, but I swear it looked completely gone after the repair on the same day. From the outside, all I could see was a flat bubble in the glass.

The next day, I am driving and I look over and I can see the crack clearly from the inside of the car. The impact circle still looks better, so I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and figure I should have looked at it closer from the inside on the same day of the repair.

When would you conclude a crack repair has failed?

When you can see the crack? Or when you see the crack extend beyond the length which it was when the repair was made?
