please refer to this bug report:

The smbclient of gvfs is not working correctly in regards of case
sensitivity if the auto argument for the case sensitive option is set.

>The default setting of auto allows clients that support case sensitive
>filenames (Linux CIFSVFS and smbclient 3.0.5 and above currently) to
>tell the Samba server on a per-packet basis that they wish to access
>the file system in a case-sensitive manner (to support UNIX case
>sensitive semantics)

I am sorry, but this isn't (yet) supported by SMBv2 on Linux, it will be when the smb2 Unix extensions are complete.
