I added this to my two screen sections, it resulted in a "2x2560" screens 
where I could scroll with my mouse on both screens.
But just for testing it is okay.
The problem exists despite of that. 
1) Starting Xephyr :2
2) DISPLAY=:2 xrandr results in a maximum screen size of 1600x1200 again.

This must be wrong, or?
