Bob - I'd stay with a good thinset instead of glue.  You don't need to 
clean the old thinset out of the squares of the Ditra.  You just need to 
the the stuff above the surface.  If the old thinset in the membrane is 
still solid, the new thinset can adhere to it and you don't need to get 
it all out.

I would try some coarse sandpaper in a palm sander to remove all the 
thinset above the top of the Ditra.  It will eat the sandpaper quickly, 
but should work.

You need a solid base for the tile.  If the Gorilla glue has any flex, 
your grout will quickly fail.

You may want to try your question at which is 
all about tile.

Lots of very helpful tile information in their forum.

If you do try the Gorilla glue or plaything else that works well, please 
let me know how it goes.  My kitchen has a loose tile I need to address 
one of these days.  It doesn't have a proper base and I have very 
energetic kids.
