See previous email of PCMan about it :

"No, it's not a bug and smbfs is not needed, either.
GVFS, if properly installed with proper backends, should support smb.
If you can use gvfs-ls or gvfs-* commands to handle smb:// paths, then it's a bug of pcmanfm.
Otherwise, gvfs or other stuff is not correctly configured under lubuntu."

Could you please do the tests with gvfs and report back ?
