If the cockpit is too short, it might bring more comfort when sitting, because her hands would be ahead of the stem clamp. IOW, it's like if you were shortening the stem by an extra 20 mm.
However, I think most bullhorn bars are rather wide, so her hands are _outside_ your hips, rather than through them. Because of that, she might feel like she is doing a split.
As for comfort when standing, I don't know. If she was hitting her knees on the drops, it would help, but if she was hitting the horizontal straight part, then it wouldn't change a thing.
