Interesting. Also you can check this file (given you started the clone 
on a directory with the sample script where no "gimp" subdir exists)

ls -l ./gimp/.git/objects/pack/tmp_pack_*

There should be one such file and it should grow up to ~175MB during the 

BTW your git version? Here it is:

$ git --version
git version
