And I bet I know which one of those lines the separate clarinet part

No, but there is one of the Gran Duo Concertant. In this case, there
are two *piano* double staves in the score, one edited and one not,
which makes the piano part almost unplayable from that copy. The
unedited clarinet part is above those two piano staves, but -- again,
guess what -- the separate part is the *edited* one.

So what you have to do is to buy two copies, hack them apart and stick
them together again, in order to have Weber's original piano part. If
you're me, you also put the unadorned clarinet line into Sibelius, and
then print out your own copy of what Weber wrote.

I *love* it.
