Sometimes, the remote share-server is down. When the server is down, dolphin freezes then crashes when trying to view a shared directory.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Set up a samba share (at 10.1).
1. Set up your samba-mount using fstab:
# // /mnt/share cifs sername=demouser,password=1234,rw,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777,noperm     0       0
2. Re-mount fstab (so the samba share will be mounted).
3. Verify that your samba share works correctly (navigate to /mnt/share/).
4. Open dolphin, and add "/mnt/share/" to the short-cuts panel to the left.
5. Close dolphin.
6. Shut the samba share down.
7. Try to re-open Dolphin. 

Actual Results:  
Dolphin will appear frozen, and after a few seconds it will crash.

Expected Results:  
Dolphin should be opened correctly.
When the samba share is unavailable, dolphin should not crash, it should simply inform the user that the share server is down.

Description for reproducing platform:
* Arch Linux
* KDE 4.6.2
* The samba share runs in a LAN.
* Samba is mounted via fstab.

kio_smb does not mount remote shares. If you manually mounted and the application froze then it is either an application issue or a more general KIO or kdelibs issue. Moving to kio general for now.
