Clutch problem?

Had gearbox reconditioned, plus new clutch, CSC and DMF done about 6 - 7 months ago. Had the same difficult gear changes as several other people on here afterwards - difficulty engaging 1st and reverse, especially if cold. Changed gear oil to the Redline stuff, which helped, but then it started getting worse again a few months back. Had the system bled through, and that seemed to sort it, but recently it got worse again - and you can feel it pulling forwards or backwards when putting it into gear with the clutch fully depressed. Just had the master replaced today as that is the only part of the system which hadn't been done previously, and it's made some difference in that it's smoother getting into gear as the system has been bled through, but it still feels like it's pulling slightly when engaging first or reverse.

Just spoke to the guy who did the gearbox and clutch last year, but he reckons it's unlikely there's anything wrong with the CSC or clutch - which leaves me baffled as to what else it could be.

The guy who did the work today has bled the system through twice now and says he's found no indication of any leaks or air in it, and the CMC he took off today seems fine.

Anything else I can check without having to remove the gearbox as I would like to avoid that if I can?
