this is a big nonsense statement. His Qsearch is way more
efficient than yours i'm very convinced of it.

This stuff won't work in crafty either of course. And
crafty's qsearch is even way more limited than the one
from Sjeng.

This is not a qsearch issue. You are giving wrong reasons.

Please post a time table of your program needing to find
tricks at a minute or 3 a move a position
versus your 'verification search'.

Don't post a search depth table. Search depths is not important
here except if you put it against the time you need to get it.

I bet your nullmove implementation doesn't even  have a bugfix
for repetition of moves.
