Your mention of a wrapper made me wonder, "what? where?" I don't believe there was any such thing in the GIMP 2.0. So I looked in the bin directory and lo and behold! gimp-console-2.6.exe. Apparently now there are separate executables for GUI and console use. Either there weren't before, or the pre-compiled binary distro I used didn't include the console version. I called this from the web page instead of gimp-2.6.exe and problem solved! I think the official GIMP documentation needs to be updated to reflect this.
All the same, thanks for sharing your friend's wrapper. I will check it out just in case there are further issues, and it may come in handy for someone else as well! Thanks everyone for taking the time to be so helpful and for the really useful advice.
