Can't make XWin on secondary monitor big enough...

I've got a Thinkpad with a 1024x768 LCD screen connected to a 21" CRT 
monitor which I've enabled as a secondary monitor at 1600x1200 resolution.  
I'd like to run XWin in windowed mode on the secondary monitor and take up 
the full resolution.  However, try as I might, I can't make XWin any bigger 
than 1024x768 on the secondary monitor.  Here are the obvious command-lines 
I've tried:

XWin -screen 0 1600x1200@2

This results in a 1024x768 windowed XWin on the secondary monitor

XWin -screen 0 @2 -fullscreen

This results in a 1024x768 fullscreen XWin on the primary monitor

Any ideas?
