Then you should try unmounting it , comment the line in fstab and restart your
gnome session (if aftermentionned problems does not prevent you from doing it).
The kernel driver lead me to those freezing problems, actually it was not
freezing , waiting around 15min and the system was responsive. Obviously it is
unusable in such conditions.
 I guess it was with a 2k server share that i had problems , never with other
linux samba shares.
This may have been fixed in the kernel or a workaround added to gnome-vfs, i
cannot tell. Please test.

You can still use gnome-vfs driver driver for samba by using smb:// in nautilus
(press ctrl+L to access the location input ) or the networks bookmark. I never
had "freeze" with this one.
