I have a glass snowglobe type thing that's leaking, and I would like to try to fix it. Your best ideas, please!

My grandmother brought me a gold flake filled snowglobe from Alaska, a place we are both fascinated with. Pictures here
. The disc shaped bit was originally covering the round area on the bottom of the globe, but has come off, and now there is a very slow leak of the fluid inside (which smells....not good. Like gasoline-y or something. And it's very oily). I have tried to seal the hole and glue the disc back on with super glue but it slips right off. I have tried cleaning the base of the globe with soap and water as well as goo-gone, but that hasn't helped either.
Any other ideas? I would really like to save this as a memento of my grandmother.
