Is this a Shimano brand cassette? The rivets that hold the larger sprockets to the common spider on Shimano cassettes are well beyond the diameter of a cassette spacer, so I can't see why they'd create problems.
In any case if these are rivets holding sprockets together, don't grind them down since they'll lose their strength, and super glue won't make it up. Check that you have the right cassette for the body, and possibly for a smaller diameter spacer.
Also check that the lockring threads in completely by testing it on the freehub body without the cassette.
