I haven't had this problem personally but have seen it mentioned as an 
issue on the backuppc list and other places.  I'd try disabling the 
realtime on-access scan while you do a copy to see if that really is the 
problem, then decide what to do about it.  I don't know if there is any 
way to tune the cifs timeouts to tolerate it or not.
