I've just encountered this as well.  In the system log file, I found this:

Jun 16 11:33:18 stephen kernel: smb_lookup: find //.Trash-stephen 
failed, error=-5

It was followed by a bunch of stack trace information.  Anyhow, I 
checked my home directory and discovered there was no .Trash-stephen 
directory.  I created this directory, rebooted, and now my samba mounts 
all work well.

Hope this helps.

A tautology is a thing which is tautological.
