How does Adium think its online?
Dnssec trigger only changes the dns resolver to point to 127.0.0.1 at
certain times. It does not change network status.
Does Adium think it is online all the time (because of the local DNS
cache?) ? Or Adium thinks it is offline all the time (but why)?

The menu item 'Hotspot Signon' disables dnssec-trigger until you use
the menu item 'Reprobe'. It causes dnssec-trigger to list the DNS you
got from DHCP as the DNS servers to use.
Why did you want to quit it? Perhaps the stop feature is simply not
needed (except for some experts).

I have had other (OSX) users complain, about mDNS, but I do not
understand why it is affected. Likely the script
/usr/libexec/dnssec-trigger-setdns.sh is doing something that affects
mDNS. It is likely at the end of that script where it attempts to set
the DNS servers in use that it somehow inadvertently changes mdns

You mean the Do-You-Need-To-Login dialog that pops up? Nice!
