I've not tried doing this and this is a shot in the dark, but you
might try accessing your shares as \\\\server\\sharename rather than
the standard \\server\sharename.  It could be that your Linux machine
needs to have the \ characters in the network path escaped in order to
work.  Again, shot in the dark and I can't guarantee anything, but
worth trying.
