thought this info would be relevant: xrandr says "screen 0 default connected 1600x1200".

maybe I'm supposed to set it manually, e.g. xrandr -s 800x600, as the xpra FAQ says:

you can resize the desktop using the standard "randr" desktop tools (and not by resizing the window at present)

if this is indeed the case, then maybe the win-switch screen size field should be grayed out for sessions of type xpra?

This should result in winswitch launching Xephyr with the correct resolution. randr can be used afterwards to change things again.

Can you please show:

ps -ef | grep Xephyr

It should contain a -geometry switch to the resolution you asked for.

/usr/bin/Xephyr -name GNOME Fallback No Effects -geometry 800x600 :1068

there seems to be the need for quotes around the name.

just as a check, I run a single-word name session ("GNOME"), and the problem persists.

I wonder if this issue is rooted in a Xephyr bug:
(I'm using Xephyr version 1.13.3)

The quotes aren't shown with ps, but the command arguments has them, or it wouldn't work at all.

Looks like you found the actual bug, you can verify this by downgrading Xephyr to an earlier version.
