That's my expectation.
Note you can list branches you might have still based on the
old git cvs mirror repo with e.g.,:
$ git branch --contains 14cd51f7793a9ce07bc435069f57269450141363
That's the hash of the initial commit in the old git cvs mirror.
(myself, I've put that in a 'git-gdb-old-branches' script for
$ git branch -a --contains 14cd51f7793a9ce07bc435069f57269450141363
to include remote branches in the query.
Once that gives the empty set, garbage collection should
be able to shrink your repo.
I have remotes pointing to other people's random repos based
off the git/cvs mirror out there, so I expect it'll be a
long while before that'll ever happen for me. But I'm really
not worried about that myself.
