comment Importing a large Excel file
@P.Fonseca JVMArguments works for me in 10.4 but it is not documented. This is a thing I truly consider a bug of the documentation. What I don't understand is that specifying the CommandLine didn't work at all under OSX.

comment Why one needs two Unevaluated to show 1+1 correctly in TreeForm?
It's not entirely clear. On the one hand, if you use a LinkSnooper to monitor the communication between FronEnd and Kernel, you clearly see that the kernel sends the wrong result back. On the other hand, if you use math in a terminal session, you can call TreeFrom[Unevaluated[1+1]] and it gives you back a tree-form where the 1+1 is not evaluated. But the Unevaluated isn't stripped either. Therefore, I think the issue is in the kernel, but the kernel behaves differently when it is attached to a graphical FrontEnd.

comment Why one needs two Unevaluated to show 1+1 correctly in TreeForm?
Exactly and why is that? Because #& is another function that is called and that leaks evaluation! Look here. In general, Leonid has a bunch of very advanced answers around the topic evaluation control, but they might be a bit too difficult for beginners. This is why I wrote up an answer to this question, because it gave me the opportunity to discuss a very small detail that might lead to people thinking about this topic.

comment Rendering a shape rather than a point in Graphics
It's a bit funny, because you are building the Graphics yourself and you're not using ListPlot. It is a very small step to use Rectangle instead of Point and I wonder why you haven't just tried that?
