This sounds like another urban myth :).

I think you can calculate the diffusion, assuming you save frames often
enough and your system is not ridiculously small. You may even be able to
recover the "unwrapped" coordinates if a strict wrapping is done (i.e.,
without shifting the COM) by reversing the PBC to X(t+dt)-X(t).
