This problem still exists in 16.04 64-bit as well, and has been around
for about 7 years
This is a serious mark against switching to Linux, the mount -t cifs
option is nice for power users, but not for not so much tech-savy users.

gvfs smb / cifs file copy performance is terribly slow
Status in gvfs package in Ubuntu:
Copying moderate-size files to a samba share using gvfs is
ridiculously slow compared to doing the same via mount.cifs. For
$ ls -sh testfile
$ time cp testfile ~/mnt/share-gvfs/
$ time cp testfile ~/mnt/share/
I'm running Xubuntu 13.04 (raring) amd64, gvfs 1.16.1-0ubuntu1.1.
