Fish.   If you have a digital Multimeter?   Disconnect the batteries from all wiring and let them rest for a while to settle their voltages.  Then measure the resistance across the - & + of each battery.   If one has a largely higher internal resistance to the other [being the same brand and age] I would say there would be an internal fault and the higher resistance is causing the heating of a few cells. 

Please ignore if this has already been suggested.

Nope not the linking cable. In series, any voltage issue would be seen across both batteries.

Also, 2.54 and 2.55V could be a red hearing. You need a really good multi meter to get you an honest result. How do you know if the 2.54 is not actually 2.549. And I would expect you to be seeing differences in readings of 0.01 of a volt anyway. Many Multimeters would have internal errors of 0.01 of a volt. You would need to be using a top end device of a couple hundred bucks to get better accuracy.
You need to get a sparky to place a sophisticated battery analyzer on the thing and get a proper readout you can compare across both batteries.
