I was going to write and say: when I've used xnest I've had to adjust
for a border around the xnest window, and so if I was on a 1600x1200
screen (say), I'd tell xnest to use 1598x1198, with -geometry.

However, looking at my xnest-using scripts, I see I don't do that, and
do in fact say -geometry 1600x1200 - it's rdesktop I "trim" for.
Still, I can report that I did use -geometry with xnest, and maybe
trimming is worth thinking about...  Perhaps I just didn't notice it
under xnest.  :)
