You have to tell it not to end on the accidental.

\relative c'' {
   \override Fingering #'staff-padding = #'()
   \once \override Glissando #'extra-offset = #'(0 . 1.4)
   \once \override Glissando #'bound-details #'right #'end-on-accidental = ##f
<d-1>4\glissando <cis-1>

There are more accurate & automated ways of doing this, though.  If you create 
a Scheme engraver that acknowledges fingerings and glissandi and then override 
the Y positions to match up with these fingerings, you don't need to use the 
extra offset.  Check out scheme-engraver-instance.ly and scheme-engraver.ly in
