There is no need to create (and later delete) the 'outer' channel.
Just use the selection itself. In Script-fu, this would be done as
(gimp-selection-grow image dist)
(set! inner (car (gimp-selection-save image)))
(gimp-selection-grow image (+ dist 1))
(gimp-channel-combine-masks (car (gimp-image-get-selection image))
CHANNEL-OP-SUBTRACT 0 0)
(gimp-image-remove-channel image inner)
