comment Why I cannot change the AxesStyle of the Plot?
In the case of ListPlot we have similar but much lesser severe bug: ListPlot[Prime[Range[25]], AxesStyle -> {Arrowheads[Large], Arrowheads[Large]}].

comment Why I cannot change the AxesStyle of the Plot?
So it is a bug in handling of the default ImagePadding -> All in combination with AxesStyle -> {Arrowheads[Large], Arrowheads[Large]}?

comment StringSplit acting weird on a String in StandardForm
Use HoldForm for this: HoldForm[x[1] x[1]] (but it is off-topic, of course).

comment OptionsPattern[] taken as a Replacement Rule
(+1) Now it is clear. I'll keep my comments since despite they don't correspond to the answer anymore they still can have some educational value.

comment OptionsPattern[] taken as a Replacement Rule
The pattern x : a : _ : x means "the pattern a named x with default value _ : x": try Clear[f, a, x]; f[x : a : _ : x] := x, then f[] returns the default value _ : x, f[a] returns a and f[1] returns unevaluated because 1 doesn't match the pattern a.

comment OptionsPattern[] taken as a Replacement Rule
The x: _ : x pattern isn't unnamed: it's a Blank pattern with name x and default value x. Try: f[x : _ : x] := x, then f[] returns x and f[1] returns 1. The case x: a : _ : x is also misinterpreted (but more complicated).

comment Run several input cells in parallel
@Ben Well, it is possible to make a Palette that will automatically assign individual kernels to selected Cells. What is better: ParallelSubmit or such approach, depends on the actual goals. I just wished to give an alternative.

comment Why here does Import[file] produce an error LinkOpen::linke:?
Which OS and Mathematica version are you using and how your $UserInitializationFolder is defined? With version 10.4.1 on Win7 x64 I have no problems with the code Import[FileNameJoin[{$UserBaseDirectory, "Kernel", "init.m"}], "Text"].
