The brake and clutch shares the same fluid. Older fluid has more residual particles and therefore tends to expand more easily with heat and tends to make the brakes and clutch feel "firm". New fluid expands less and should have a more consistent feel. Another point to consider is the viscosity of the new brake fluid used. Could be of higher grade and less viscous and less adaptable to expansion after heat up.

I think you are just experiencing the difference between the new fluid which give you more play than the old fluid which felt more "firm".

Hope this helps.
