I assume that fixing that bug won't happen soon as it is open for so 
long already (?)

So my alternative might be dropping snapper and do the btrfs-snapshots 
plus the rotation etc with self-written (=copied) scripts and timers.

vfs_shadow_copy2 worked in my tests, I only switched to vfs_snapper 
because it looked promising to have all the rotation and cleanup of 
snapshots done by snapper (nicely configured in one place).

Displaying the snapper-snapshots via vfs_shadow_copy2 doesn't work afai 
see: the naming doesn't match etc
