Same problem here with Karmic Koala, half-solved.

The server is a Windows 2008 server. The Linux machine has only the client part of samba. The IP addresses are fix.

In konqueror:
smb://servername works fine
smb:// works fine
smb:/workgroup/servername fails

I found that my problem had two origins :
 - I had to start the "Browser" service on the windows server
 - the syntax "smb:/workgroup/servername" seems to have stopped working in KDE (???)
   but "smb://workgroup/" works fine and the final functionality is the same

I hope that helps.
