It's possible you've not bled the system enough. Have someone press the clutch pedal as you look at the slave cylinder - see if it's extending out completely

This is completely the problem. Likely the cylinders were not bled on the bench prior to installation. You can do it now, but it will take a while and be a real pain in the ass.
