I've had the same problem a while ago when I had to copy a single file 
to the 2003sp1-server.
I managed to copy it by using "smbclient" and playing around with the 
"put" command.

Foobar code for the console:
smbclient //win/share -U username%password -W domain -o "get foo.txt; 
put bar.txt; exit"

"-W domain" is for servers, which are sitting in a different Domain.
If you plan to make a script for Cron, don't forget to make it 
non-readeable for non-roots because of the cleartext-password!

You can use the command without "%password". You'll have to type in the 
password, it will not be displayed then.

Files >2GB can't be transferred this way. Don't ask me why...
