Does the drive fill up because of created snapshots?

It does.

Does she run out of space although there should be plenty of space
on the drive?

Yes, she does.

The issue has happened several times in the forums, people that
complain that their filesystem is full despite reporting 1/3 used.

The users were sometimes unaware they were using btrfs.

Thus YaST should suggest bigger sizes, or the tasks that clear out old
snapshots be modified to avoid that situation.

In the recent case the user had a smaller partition than the
recommended size @11GB, so if a user over rides, not a lot you can do?

So on this system running SLED 11 SP3/btrfs my / is 19.5 GB with
currently 86 snapshots and disk usage at 42% on the openSUSE system I
used 30GB for / and it's at 25% with 39 snapshots.
