The logic in the virt-manager and virt-viewer UI for scaling isn't really
behaving nicely at this time. I have work in progress for virt-viewer to
make it do a much better job in particular maintaining aspect ratio while
scaling. Once that's working I'll do same to virt-manager

In the mean time best solution is to reduce the resolutiuon in the XP
guest itself, which will be honoured by the virt-manager window
