Sometimes if there isn't enough play in the brake pedal linkage, the brake pedal will keep the master cylinder bleed hole covered preventing fluid from returning from the slave cylinder to the reservoir. That will keep the brake on and the resulting heat build up will expand the fluid which has no where to go except to apply more pressure to the pads. The brake pedal linkage needs some free play before it contacts the master cylinder piston.
