Window over bath, frame was primed with oil base, painted window frame with semi gloss. Now paint is peeling and cracking. What causes the semi gloss paint and primer, oil base, to peel and crack?

Most likely cause is moisture. This could also cause the wood to swell causing strain on any coating, cracks will lead to peeling. You could try a semi-gloss acrylic instead after the window id prepped and primed.
