I would probably remove the Durock, then add felt and lath and mud it up with 1 inch of deck mud. Have you checked the floor with the Deflecto above?

I've used that thinset many times over Ditra, I like the way it holds up the stone. I'd give it extra time to set before walking on it and not worry about their warranty. Here's a link....

Hi Patrick, welcome. Yep, if the liner doesn't even cover the top of the curb, it's pretty much been leaking since day 1.
