I have been playing using startxwin.bat.

If I add -display and -screen extensions I can create 
multiple screens and move them around.

If I use -multiwindow or -multimonitor nothing starts, is 
there anything to add to those to get a window to open?
I have seen some notes that they have not been documented yet.
