And the same direction of painting, if you can recall, then probably yes.

A little bird tells me that you will not get rid of the crack simply by painting over it, or by applying other 'quick fixes'. In the short term, you won't be able to see the crack, but the crack will be there. As Eddie said, you should monitor the crack over time - if it grows, then that's when you need to act (it's no good leaving it over time and hoping that it will go away - when you develop a blister on your heel, the more you walk the worse it will get, unless you act accordingly).

So yeah, I think the most important thing now is monitoring the crack. Let us know how it goes!

@Esconder: What do you mean? All of the above posts were 'on-topic' unless you specify what the topic is. And I don't mind wasting keystrokes, this way I practise mu touchtuping sillks.

Well...if structural instability is the cause of the crack, then the structural instability is still there. But of course, we don't know the cause of the crack, perhaps one night you sleep-walked, got a knife and instead of stabbing your neighbour 43 times formed a crack on the ceiling with it.

It can be the house setting, or it can be some thermal effect on the plaster/paint only.
Still you haven't answered all the questions:
Quote:
What kind of house (what materials were used to build, if you know)?
How old is the house?
How many floors, how many above yours?

Ooh right. Its about 50 years old. Its a red brick house. There is only the loft above me.

I think I have found the problem. There is a virtually no 'hard floor' in the loft, just support beams running across, with the plaster directly below... and there were some heavy objects stored right above my room in the loft.

Here it is. Detailed troubleshooting always gives results Now you know how to fix that one and eliminate further troubles.
A. Remove the heavy stuff
or
B. Make a good flooring in the loft (better variant).
