I agree. You'll have yeast that are accustomed to corn sugar- first from priming, then from the so-called starter. I would dump that and use a package of dry yeast.
If you want to use a starter next time with some liquid yeast, you can do that easily by boiling 2 cups of water with 1/2 cup of dry extract, cool it and the put the yeast into it and then just cover the container with some sanitized foil.
I like wlp001 a lot, and always keep some washed yeast of that strain around in the fridge. (See the thread on yeast washing- it's great!). Then, I just make a starter about 2 days before brewing.
I think 2 TBSP of corn sugar to make a yeast starter is not a good idea.
