You know what, can't say I've ever really tried that. I would question the overall intelligence of throwing down a shroud that you're in right next to a tower, but if it does that, then it needs to be fixed. If I'm going to push hard to fix the broken things about her that would make her better, stuff like this needs to be addressed too.
Items that boost her survivability is good, but I don't really see what's so broken about being able to Shadow Dance to a spot selectable out of a Twilight Shroud. It uses up a charge, and she has to blow 2 cooldowns to do it.
Besides, it also brings to mind the Law of Jax/Katarina:
'If they're running away, they're not hitting you'.
Rylai's/Treads/Ninja Tabi do help her survivability a bit. She still can't really take a hit though (she's Melee DPS, which is fine.... no need to have someone with as high as her damage output actually be even remotely tank like). Those items just help her not explode when someone hits her, which is good.
