Note that the same thing can be accomplished by setting your FG color  
to red, setting the Mode of the paintbrush to "Subtract", and painting  
on the layer (rather than using the eraser).

Since it is pretty much a pain to describe GIMP batch processing on  
Windows (owing to Windows weak command line functionality), I just  
wrote a script which adds a "Redeye Removal Backdrop" command to your  
Layer Menu. This command preps your layer as described and, since you  
need to open every file individually anyway, shouldn't be too  
difficult. You can assign the script to keystroke to make things  
easier (or just use either the Subtract paintbrush technique, or the  
GIMP's Red-eye Removal Filter under "Filters->Enhance").
