If I understand thing correctly, Emacs stores a temporary version of the buffer you are working in somewhere in a temp folder on the system when you are visiting a file.

I don't think so.

I can see that GNU Emacs creates, in the directory the file is, a sym- link

        .#<file name> -> <user>@localhost.<PID of GNU Emacs editing the file>

If GNU Emacs crashes or gets killed the unsaved buffer is saved as

        #<file name>#

You seem to have the problem that the attributes (time stamp of last modification) of the files (and sym-links) on the CIFS share are updated more often then their contents. I seem to remember having had the same problem (on Fedora Core), plus encoding (of file names *and* their contents), but don't remember my solution. Working on a sym- link to the original file might be an option ...
