I finally managed to resolve this issue. Here is what I did:

In $HOME/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/kpartplugins is a file searchbar.rc. This 
file describes the shared library which is loaded for the searchbar. During 
the update from Kubuntu 8.04 to 9.04 searchbar.rc file was not updated. 
Therefore it contained the old .so name libsearchbarplugin. In the meantime 
the name changed to searchbarplugin. Therefore konqueror could not load the 
library. To resolve the issue I extracted the searchbar.rc file from the 
debian package konqueror-plugin-searchbar_4%3a4.2.2-0ubuntu1_i386.deb in 
/var/cache/apt/archives to $HOME/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/kpartplugins. After 
that the searchbar reappeared.

Thanks to all who have tried to help me.
