Well, with that restriction imposed, you are solving a different optimization problem. For instance, the correlation of FLgnd with the instruments would certainly be different than that of F.gnd. So it doesn't surprise me. You should be able to do lincom 1 - FLgnd after estimation to get the estimate of the other coefficient.
