Fullscreen application with Cygwin/X in multiwindow mode

I recently installed xinit and the PDF viewers Evince and Zathura. I'm
starting X via startxwin which puts it in multiwindow mode. Both of
the PDF viewers work fine, except when I press F11 to view a PDF
fullscreen, nothing changes.

Is this an inherent limitation of Cygwin/X, or a problem with my
config or these particular applications? Should it be possible to make
an X application fullscreen while running in multiwindow mode?
