[R] X11() device widht and height parameters limited to one screen

if I specify the width and height of a plot I want to see via

 > X11(width=14,height=7)
 > X11(width=28,height=14)
 > X11(width=20,height=14)
 > X11(width=13,height=14)
 > X11(width=15,height=14)

any width greater than 15 is ignored as it seems the width is limited by 
the screen width.

However, as I am using two screens (xinerama), I can easily manually 
resize to fit two screens.

Is there a way to get it to be wider than one screen width via the X11 
call? Is there something else I am doing wrong?

Thanks for your help!
