The optimize function in SciPy is giving the problem
I think they are using Gradient Descent algorithm to find a minima. It works fine for local minima but not for global minima.
It's mostly related to the algorithm
This is the issue with constrained minima as well as non-constrained minima

That's pretty typical for most optimization algorithms. You can try something like simulated annealing that jumps more wildly.
