How are you invoking XWin?  Do you use the script?  If so,
XWin is invoked in multi-window mode, which uses the Windows screen as the
X screen.  Try invoking XWin directly, and giving it the -screen parameter
(see the man page for instructions on specifying the screen size), and
-scrollbars to allow resizing/scrolling.
