I think we have ran into the same problem as you have, could you check
if a 'Window | Reset Perspective' forces your entry in the 'New'
dropdown? If so then we're talking about the same issue.

Point is that as soon as you select a Perspective for the first time,
Eclipse will save the initial state of that perspective at that
moment, you can then change the perspective any way you like and your
'personalized' state will be saved accordingly. Now in theory your
personal preference could be not to have the
'com.arm.eclipse.cdt.newproject.wizard' in the 'New' dropdown, so
Eclipse cannot just add it afterwards. At least this was my analysis
of the issue.
