She reports the $500 she received in 2010 on her 2010 return... But in no case does it go on her 2011 return when it was paid in 2010.

In the OP it sounded like that company is going to report the $500 received in 2010 on her 2011 1099. If they go ahead and actually do that, shouldn't she be thinking about getting her paperwork in order now to be ready to answer the question "Why is $500 from your 2011 1099 not showing up on your 2011 return?"

The answer will be, of course, "Because I earned it in 2010 and declared it on my 2010 return." She better be able to prove it, right?
