If you use sugar-emulator, this is a problem (I wouldn't call it a bug 
because I have no idea what should be the desired behavior) in 
/usr/sugar/shell/ in code starting from the line

"if gtk.gdk.screen_width()" ...

It determines if it should run Xephyr in fullscreen or windowed mode by 
the size of the screen, so to fix that behavior you can edit the line 
(that contains the condition for choosing the fullscreen mode) and 
subsequent lines that determine arguments to Xephyr.
