I haven't spilled any on any pins yet.  You don't need very much glue to make it work.  I don't know how conductive super glue is, I don't think it is very, but it might be an interesting experiment.  I'll pull out the datasheet and put some glue between D0 and D1 or some pins that won't be shorting Vcc to ground and see if it affects it.
