You appear to have unconfigured samba, what have you done to it?! The 
problem appears because apt tries to configure all unconfigured, but 
configurable packages in dpkg.

Now, you appear to have broken runlevel links to the samba init script, 
you could try removing those files /etc/rc2.d/K09samba and 
/etc/rc3.d/K09samba, the postinstall should recreate them for you and 
you system should work as planned again.

It looks like gdesklets was installed properly after all this, though.
