Why is the CDT launch bar the only toolbar item not manageable via the Customize Perspective dialog? I wasted way too much time trying to figure out how to get rid of it. It should be able to be configured in the same way as all the other toolbar items.

There are a couple of reasons. The main one is that it's injected using e4. The old Eclipse e3 APIs don't support the size of the controls we're using properly (they get cut off). And we want to control where it appears when it is turned on, i.e. on the far left.

There is a preference to turn it off in the Run/Debug - Launching - Launch Bar preference page.

Be aware thought that with the CDT, there are some workflows that don't work without it, e.g. CMake projects. That may get fixed in the future, but that depends on people contributing to that.
