Interested in a house with "settling" issues

You are not my structural engineer: I'm interested in a house that has a "settling" problem. There's a 2-inch gap in the floor moulding in the master bedroom. There's a small crack visible on the wall on the first floor directly below. Other than that, no visible issues (but I haven't looked too hard and were directed to these problems by the disclosure statement.) Is this a "RUN!!" situation or is there a scenario which can result in a clean bill of health? The house was built in 1910, is otherwise in beautiful condition, and we're in New England.
