I would say almost definitely splash because it seems to be the obvious pattern further back in her pedigree. Giles Hot Teddy displays the classic front jag hind leg markings found in either sabino or splash - and seeing as she's tested negative for sabino, I'd assume those are splash genes lurking behind. Sir Maugrey way back on her dam's side has that big crisp white face which screams splash to me, not frame.
I do believe splash also has a FAR bigger tendency to display itself very minimally, much like sabino, as opposed to frame. Although you did happen to find photos of frames that look like her, a search shows they're very hard to find - you'll almost always find a splotch of body white.
You also have to consider breed - splash and sabino are those consistant colors that keep popping up when nobody thought a breed could have them. Splash seems much more likely in her then frame, as they're not a typically pinto breed.
In the end, you probably won't find a definitive answer, but based on the few pics I can find on her ancestors and what I can see, I'd bet all my money on splash. It tends to be much trickier like sabino when it comes to hiding itself for generation after generation, and frame has more of a tendency to crop up physically at SOME point.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
