Different resolutions for xwin

Hi, All,
I Load Win with "run XWin -clipboard -nodecoration -lesspointer", which
works fine on my office XP machine. The problem is that sometime I need to
remote desktop onto my office machine, and the monitor in my home is smaller
than the one in my office. So every time I remote desktop, Xwin will
shutdown automatically because the resolution is not right. Is there any way
to get around this? I use up to 6 ssh terminals and it's troublesome to type
in the password every time.
Also, I don't like the multiwindow solution although it works for this case.
There are too many windows open up on XP.
