Then watch the recentered trajectory to see what happened. Dissociation should
be apparent, and smooth if the PBC effects have been correctly accounted for.
If the dissociation is real, either the initial position was unfavorable
(docking is sometimes incorrect!) or the topology of the ligand was inadequate
and thus you got a poor model of the interactions.
