I haven't look at the code for swing2swt.layout.BorderLayout in any great detail (we didn't write it), but it does appear to dynamically compute the size of each cell based on its contents. I don't know that there is any way around that.
BTW, if you want better control over the size of each cell, you might just want to use the standard SWT GridLayout instead. A three column grid could be used to emulate a BorderLayout very effectively.
