Yuk, top posting...  Reformatted.

Just to be clear: c) is not possible with pure Cygwin/X.  I don't think
there is any code that does b) either.  That leaves a), which is what I've
been implying you can achieve.

BTW, what is the size of your X application?  When you imply that it
doesn't fit on the XP screen, and then say that you set your X window size
to be the same as your XP screen, it's pretty confusing...

I'm going to assume for the rest of this message that your X application
is 1280x1024.

I'm not sure this is the right syntax for the -screen parameter...  Try
"-screen 0 1280 1024".  Also, the -nodecoration may screw up the
scrollbars (but, IIRC, run hides the root window unless -nodecoration is
specified, so you'll have to switch to "start" or "cygstart").

So, to summarize, try

cygstart XWin :0 -screen 0 1280 1024 -scrollbars -query %REMOTE_HOST% -lesspointer -clipboard

and see if you get a big enough window for your X app with scrollbars.
