My experience is that the system crashes.
I have not tested this with a snapshot but a general thin pool overflow
crashes the system.
Within half a minute, I think.
It is irrelevant whether the volumes had anything to do with the
operation of the system; ie. some mounted volumes that you write to that
are in no other use will crash the system.
