I would say that this statement is just false. Worst-case complexity is still N**2. How about something like: """ This implementation of qsort() has worst case complexity of N**2. However measures were taken that make it very unlikely that for some random input N**2 swaps will be made. It's still possible to generate such an input on purpose though. See code below for more details.
