Are you using smbclient or smbfs? The message is not entirely clear ...

If you are using smbfs then the segmentation fault should include a kernel 
oops. If you run dmesg you can see the most recent output from the kernel.

If there is an oops you need to decoded it and send it to me. Decoding an 
oops can be done like this:

dmesg | ksymoops > oops.txt
