Good, so flash player form the repos is not installed, which is what you want, as you said you have _64 player installed.

nspluginwrapper is for using 32 bit flash on _64 machine and it shouldn’t be needed.
Try removing it and if pullin-flash-player is installed, remove it, because that’s what keeps dragging it in I think.
