Your first problem sounds like a thermostat that is sticking and only opening late. The second could be a leak in the overflow system or the radiator and piping system itself. That can only be found by inspection under the correct conditions. If the overflow bottle is too full it could also let off a bit of coolant that has expanded.

Antifreeze and transmission fluid don't run together any ware, but are both cooled by the transmission. There are coils inside the radiator that the transmission fluid runs through to be cooled. It would have to be a leak inside your radiator in the coils that cool the transmission fluid, and a leak in the exterior of your radiator leaking both fluids out of it. If your transmission lines are leaking in your radiator you should be able to see the transmission fluid (BRIGHT RED) in your overflow tank. Also the puddle under your car should be a red and green mixture kind of going everywhere. If they are to different leaks then you would be looking for a transmission leak and a coolant leak. Also check your oil and make sure that you don't see anything unusual looking about it. If you find that you have transmission fluid in your radiator I would contact whom ever replaced the lines for you, they should have been able to see this was the problem. Good luck hope this helps you narrow it down to the actual problem, if you have more questions reply to this post I will try to assist you further.
