You have been subscribed to a public bug:

When trying to copy whole shared dir from a samba share - it will fail with access denied. I thought this was opensuse 11.0 samba server bug, but extensive test revealed it is something in ubuntu 8.04.
Copying files via smb:// works without problems, but not when copying parent folder containing that files.
This problem doesn't appear at all if I manually mount samba share like this:

#sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=USER,password=PASS // /mnt
at this point everything works.

Please see this bug report for details (including attachments):
