Copy file problem from Linux to Windows samba in KDE

I am using Kubuntu Hardy, and I got problem when I tried to copy PDF file from my Linux drive to Windows samba share. It copies successfuly but I couldn’t open it, or even delete with my DEL button. I need to right click and delete.

It turns out that the problem is on the file naming. The file name has special character, in my case it was colon “:”. After I remove the colon, KDE copies successfuly and I can open the PDF file in my Konqueror.
