Hmm, you're right. I was thinking it helped to deal with memory
addressing issues for 32-bit systems, but I guess
core.packedGitWindowSize should be handling that. IOW, the 10G packfile
should work just fine for normal access.

However, the OP did say he got an "out of memory" error during the
clone. So maybe there is a problem to be fixed in index-pack there.
