Add something like
par.settings = list(layout.widths = list(ylab = 2))

Do you want it to interact? I don't think width and height matter, but
pointsize (or whatever its equivalent for win.graph) might.

Yes, but the second label is blank (""). Why is that not enough?
For finer control of tick marks and labels, you can specify a custom
function that computes these. See ?xscale.components.default, but this
is not very well documented and you will have to look into the sources
