Split Ceramic Disk Capacitor

Since I am forced to stay at home more than I would like I though I would
check some more PSUs. One I wanted to check was the H7109-C from one of my
VAXstation 4000 VLC machines. I found a leaked capacitor and some other high
ESR ones, so I will replace those. However, I also noticed a ceramic disk
capacitor that appears to be split all around the edge. Is that a known
failure mode?
