Hey thanks Sarah! (again :) ) That (apt-cache policy) was a good hint.
Apparently the version i had installed was newer than the one in the
repository. Shouldn't have been there in the first place of course, but
now I downgraded it, and everything is fine again.

This closes the bug for me... but more people might suffer from it, as
this 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu1 0 version has been living in some repository
somewhere at sometime (i didn't compile it). And not only for libkonq4.
I checked the 'obsolete-status' in synaptic, and a lot of kde packages
suffer from this. Maybe the whole kde 3.5.6 set should be upgraded to
4:3.5.6-0ubuntu2~edgy1 0 to clean up this mess?

(yes i have backports enabled)

  Installed: 4:3.5.6-0ubuntu1
