So then things worked, yes?

In what way? Why does this lead you to believe that your restraints
aren't working? The questions I asked before are more diagnostic of
whether or not things are functioning. Dumping a (non-PBC-corrected)
frame and looking at another one (PBC corrected, albeit perhaps not in
the best way) does not say anything about whether or not the algorithms
