You are perhaps mistaken here. In the GIMP 1.2.x no windows for drawing is
instantiated  at launchtime.  I have  checked  the settings and it appears
as though there is no such option either, which  is made easily-available.
CTRL+N usually gets me started if I do not wish to  manipulate an already-
existent image.

I am using The GIMP 2.x on other machines and I suspect that the behaviour
is (or should be) the same.  Check to see if something among your settings
causes this anomaly.

Hope it helps,
