The moment I read about your problem I also thought of this. There must always be a bit of free play on the actuator rod, if not the mastercylinder piston cannot move fully back to the rest position where it opens a small hole in the mastercylinder bore to allow the returning brake fluid back into the reservior. So every time you used the brake it built up more pressure in the system.
