Can you make a stack larger than the screen rect under Windows?

I've build a program that has a user-window set to the screenrect. The 
right half of the window is scrollable. It would be useful if the user 
could move the window to the left so the left side of the window was 
off the screen, and then "grow" the scrollable part to the right (using 
the mouse to grow the window). This works fine under OS X. However, 
under Windows (2000-it's the only one I've tested), even if you move 
the whole window off to the left, you can't grow the window larger than 
the screen rectangle (which is what it was originally set to).

Is there a way around this? I assume this is a Window's limitation.
