Dissolve them? Why, it doesn't even slow them down!

On dissolving superglue to free-up pins: I have tried ethanol, methanol, and nail polish remover (acetone). The little buggers don't even twitch. Bother.

Oops...I was gonna suggest you pop the flash but it won't work on my K10 so I assume the same for your camera.
Maybe hire a kid to go with you on shoots.

I wouldn't let ether or acetone anywhere near a lens. Apart from that they would not work, nor would alcohol.

Heat will release iso-cyanoacrylate based adhesives, but you are looking at 160-190 deg C and the fumes produced when you do this are very nasty.

You could always try superglue solvent/release agent available in shops next to the superglue.
