I posted something regarding this just now, but here is a repeat:

Find fs/smbfs/proc.c in your kernel source tree.
Search for smb_proc_close_inode().
See if changing any of the operations it does there helps.
  - remove the code after the "Kludge alert"
  - remove smb_proc_setattr_ext()
  - replace ino->i_mtime in the smb_proc_close() call with a 0

I have been a bit busy recently but I will eventually get around to
looking more closely at this.
