Well, I've got a very poor knowledge about eclipse plugin development, but it seems to me that it's the normal behaviour: by default, plugin won't be loaded until one of its feature is accessed, it's the eclipsee "lazy-loading" behaviour (as in Hibernate, for those who might know it).
I've just had a look in an eclipse plugin : when opening the plugin.xml with the eclipse viewer, in the overview tab, there's an option which is selected by default, under "Activator" textfield : there's a checkbox "Activate this plug-in when one of its class is loaded". Maybe you could try and see if unselecting this does what you want ? But, the thing is that it would then obviously cause the loading of whole the plug-in inconditionally, which might not be exactly what you want, but just a particular class ?
If you just want to have one particular class loaded and not the whole plug-in, maybe isolating the new feature in another plug-in could do it as a workaround ?
Hope this helps,
