The Debug perspective is shared by JDT and CDT (and any other development
tools with debugging features). All the actions you mentioned are Java
specific and are contributed by JDT. They are useful if you are debugging
Java and C/C++ applications at the same time.
You can remove all this actions from the debugger views by unchecking the
"Java Debug" action group on the 'Preferrence'->'Debug'->'Debug Action
Group' page.

There is the 'Disconnect' menu item in context menu. The problem with the
tool-tips is probably Motif specific. On Windows the tool-tips appear
regardless of the button's state.
