In Workbench Server Administration:

The 'New Server Profile'-wizard has had the 'Custom'-profile template removed (since it crashed Workbench).
However, it is still available in 'Manage Server Instances' dialog. Although available, it's not working. If you set it to 'Custom', it defaults back to the first in the list.

How to repeat:
* Server Administration > Manage Server Instances
* 'System Profile'
* Choose 'Custom'
* Close or choose other instance
* Check the instance you change profile: it changed back to first in list

This "Custom" Profile, available in "Manage Server Instance" Dialog is merely an indicator that values have been changed manually after selecting a predefined template. thats the reason its not separately available in the wizard, because its not supposed to be a template the user choses to start with.
So it's actually expected behaviour.
