How about
rpm -e --justdb --nodeps glibc
rpm -e --justdb --nodeps glibc-common

That's a shot in the dark on my part. :)  Obviously {in,unin}stalling
glibc is a dangerous venture.  If you do --justdb, you will leave
the old libs around (extra crud).  It would be safer to boot the
system with a boot/rescue CD or the like, mount your real system and
then do a real removal (rpm -e --nodeps) and real install of the new
stuff (rpm -ivh).

Just my US$0.02.
