are you saying that you can NOT load/save files on a windows share with gimp?

then it probably is a problem with gnomeVFS and GIMP. maybe search for these keywords on google or launchpad...

To open a remote share from Gimp you must mount the remote resource locally.
You can do this installing smbfs (deprecated better use cifs) and using mount -t smbfs command
To use cifs, see this howto http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=288534&highlight=cifs

To use the deprecated smbmount way you must get smbfs, with terminal do a:
sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install smbfs
create a local dir as your local mount point of remote shared resource
sudo mkdir /media/xx_dir
sudo mount -t smbfs -o username=xx_user,password=xx_password //192.168.1.50/xx_sharename /media/xx_dir/
after that you can open the local resource /media/xx_dir with Gimp
