Hello,
I also ran into the same problem, but found a quick work around:

column.setPreferredWidth(width);
column.setMinWidth(width);
column.setMaxWidth(width);

Since this sets the Min, Max, and Preferred to all the same size, Java has
no choice on what size to make things. The one draw back is the user can
no longer resize the columns. Hope that helps!
