I can't say for certain if nylon will stop stretching. I tend to think of it as being more elastic in nature. It will stretch and then return to it's pre stretched state. I also hope that the webbing that you used in the hammock body edges isn't of the same type as that used in the suspension triangle and tree huggers.
I have a JRB bridge hammock but the stock webbing was replaced with amsteel. So I don't have any stretch issues. A hanging buddy of mine also had a stock suspension JRB bridge hammock and he didn't have any suspension stretch issues like you describe for yourself or your buddy. So I can't help you with that issues.
