It's a bug and it looks like it's still a big in Hardy as well.
Your network (NetworkManager) is being shutdown before dismounting of
the Samba shares, that won't work so well :)

You can do the following work around:
cd /etc/rc6.d
ls -la

You should see : 
S<nr>wpa-ifupdown the nr is probably 15
S<nr> that nr is probably 31

sudo mv

The point is to give the a lower as your
You'll still see the Networkmanager errors but the CIFS is gone :)
