But there will be 2.3.6, maybe 2.3.7 etc. released from glibc-2_3-branch.
Anyway, trying to work around glibc bugs in applications is silly.
If a system is using many groups, the admin better made sure he doesn't run
a buggy glibc that can't handle it.  A workaround can help just one app (mc
in this case), while still many other programs will be broken.
