OK, so its possible to use the subpic editor to CREATE a new image file.
That changes things slightly. The workround depends on how the name of
the new image is created:

If subpic defines the file name, keep a copy of a blank BMP file
somewhere and change the 'gimp' line in the wrapper to something along
the lines of:

if [ ! -r "$1" ]
	cp /somewhere/$1
gimp "$1"

should do the trick. This makes a copy of your stored default blank
image where subpic expects to find it and then runs Gimp to edit the
copy. If the image file already exists, then the Gimp will simply edit

According to the Gimp manpage the command "gimp -a newimagename" should
cause the Gimp to create a new image and, when done, save it as
'newimagename' but that doesn't work for Gimp 2.6.11
