I run the file startxwin.bat. The coomand I run is the following:
run XWin :0 -screen 0 1024x768@1 -scrollbars -query %REMOTE_HOST%
-nodecoration -lesspointer -clipboard
My current WindowsXp screen resolution is 1024x768 .

How are you invoking XWin? Do you use the startxwin.sh 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.
