To force a fixed width, use a custom latex column format and pass it to the
latex function. If this does not solve the column break problem, manually
pass the column titles and insert a "\n". I have used the first version, the
second one might not work.

A workaround is to rotate the output with latex, or to use a smaller font.
Also, making the padding space columns in latex smaller can help.
