Clutch Hangs up

I have replaced the clutch and pilot bearing in my 1997 Ford Ranger with a 2.3 liter 5 speed overdrive manual transmission. The problem is intermittently the clutch pedal does not fully depress and bottoms out hard and short and the clutch lightly engages. If I slightly push the clutch pedal in a couple of times the clutch engages sometimes squealing the rear wheels. Most of the time I have no problems with the clutch and it depresses fully with no slipping on engagement. Might the slave cylinder or the throw out bearing be too dry on the sleeve and slowly returning to suddenly engaging? This seems to occur in heavy stop and go traffic with much use on the clutch.
