I upgraded from panther to tiger and had this same issue, but I never used the 
cmd-K way of connecting.  I always used finder and hunted the network and 
attempted to authenticate and mount.  Researching some things after reading this 
thread I tried the cmd-K method and used the smb://... approach and it connected 
just fine.  I'm going to try and do a few more tests when I get the chance and 
see if there is a difference between the methods of connecting.
