    Flexible lines collapse internally. They can appear fine on the outside. They collapse internally, allowing fluid to pass thru but not return. Most likely the culprit.
    Best thing to do is when it locks up, Crack open the bleeder, if it stays locked, caliper is bad, if it frees up, brake hose. Since you replaced caliper already, odds are its ok and its the hose. I have had the caliper brackets be all crapped up inside causing the slide pins to not float.i always either replace the brackets as well when doing a brake job or clean the holes really well and lube them. I trust you cleaned and lubed the slides correctly.
