From Understanding fasm:
Quote:
In case of simple dependencies between instruction forms and label addresses flat assembler tries to find the one with possibly smallest instruction encodings, but this doesn't mean it always find the smallest existing solution in general, and in some cases it may not be able to find the solution even though it exists.

The problem is not solvable in general, there always will exist some source that fasm will be not able to resolve even though the solution may exist.
The method of disabling optimization of critical instruction, that is pointed out by "diamond" is the right one.
