Repeated failures trying to update glibc using yum/rpm

I've got rawhide running on one machine, and by and large things work
well. The only repeated snag of late has been trying to update glibc,
as all attempts fail with rpm dying due to an assertion error. This
problem is in bugzilla as bug #190488, and is currently marked as a
'wontfix' bug. I have the most current RPM package for rawhide
My question is just how is everyone else managing to get the last couple
of glibc updates installed? Is there an option or set of options needed
to make RPM skip the check where the assertion fails? Are people using
some other program to do the installation, or perhaps built their own
RPM binary and been using that?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions, workarounds, etc.
