Maybe the master cylinder is defective, bring it back and get another

I imagine your using the brake pedal to push the fluid out of the lines? How are the brakes? Low pads or shoes in the rear could cause this, a sticking caliper or misadjusted rear brake shoes.
Are the current symptoms the ones that made you replace the master cylinder?
