This is not the right place to report issues. You should check with
KDE guys.
As far as i know, the feature you're using has very few developers
working on it, as it was initially developed by Caldera.
By the way, i suppose you're using Samba 2.2.
I know this is really buggy.
To solve your issues:
  - Upgrade de Samba 3 (Or at least libsmbclient from Samba 3)
  - Upgrade to KDE >= 3.1.4, compiled with kio_smb libsmbclient support.

This is my setup and it works rather fine.
