Cracks in door frames and staircases

I just bought and moved into a 60 year old house. After a month in the house, I'm starting to see cracks above doorframes and staircases (around handrails). I'm not sure if the previous owner patched and painted over prior cracks, but I'm wondering if I should be concerned.

Extra info: 2 basement walls were replaced about 3 years ago because of tree roots. The trees and roots were chopped, but the walls had to be replaced.
