UltraVNC display window odd size

I use UltraVNC quite a bit.  Today I encountered a very strange problem:
The display window on the remote computer is small and isn't covering the total UltraVNC Server computer's window even though there is plenty of display area available on the Viewer.

Just for background:
We are using UltraVNC in this case to help transition from an old XP computer to a new Win 7 computer using the same monitor.
I first set up the XP computer as an UltraVNC Server.
Then I switched the monitor cable and set up the Windows 7 computer as an UltraVNC Viewer.
Then I access the XP computer from the Win 7 computer.

The monitor is a more or less modern flat screen which is probably Wide format and is fairly large - maybe 24".
I would note that the XP computer was using this same monitor so I would expect that it's display resolution was set reasonably

The viewing window that comes up is rather small (like 1/4 screen) and I can't make it larger.  Also, the contents of the display in that window aren't complete - things seem to be cut off and there are no scroll bars as I recall (I don't have it in front  of me).  
So, overall, it isn't as functional as it needs to be.

I have looked briefly at UltraVNC settings but haven't spent the time to wade through it in any comprehensive way.  I figure someone must know what's happening and can give me a suggestion.

I tried all manner of things since.  Full Size did some things OK but it tended to revert to the unacceptable display mode which drove the user crazy.
I got it working "sorta" but can't tell you now how.

Eventually we went to Windows Remote Desktop and solved the problem.

I think the question became moot.
