I've had similar problems, including the smb_add_request timing out. So I
reverted to the older kernel. I also had a problem with the ethernet module
on my motherboard (Via Rhine) being unable to communicate with that newer
kernel. And apparently 2.6.8 also causes permissions problems with using
k3b as non-root.
Hate to say it, but it looks like 2.6.8 is a big loser, judging from your post

2.6.8 had some issues, but 2.6.10 is the latest stable, so I'd use that (in fact...I do! )."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

What do you mean by this? Reconfiguring or Reinstalling your 3D drivers
the nvidia (and i think ATI) drivers are built using the kernel you use. so if u update ur kernel, u might need to reinstall the nvidia (and maybe ATI) drivers.
would getting the up to date current drivers work
