Thanks for your response.
I should have been more explicit.

Here is what I have used:
REM Startup the X Server with the integrated Windows-based window manager.
start XWin -multiwindow -multiplemonitors -clipboard

REM Startup an xterm, using bash as the shell.
run xterm -sl 1000 -sb -rightbar -ms red -fg yellow -bg black -e /usr/bin/bash

I have also tried it with the -screen 0 -screen 1 options, and with just the screen

-multiplemonitors seems to work best but I still have problems.
The xterm window is partially blanked out with white. When I drag
the window it flashes on both screens completely whiting out the xterm
window. When I drop it, the xterm is just where it should be but
the xterm window is still at least partially blanked out with white.

Any ideas?
Thanks for your help.

Please try to use -multimonitors option.
