2008.09 has a better search, but it doesn't seem to be enabled by default in either 2008.08 (updated to 2008.09) or directly-installed 2008.09. To enable it, edit the file /home/root/.config/Trolltech/Contacts.conf, in the section [default], put the line EnableFindBar=1 . If the file doesn't exist, create it with only those two lines in.
