new toilet runs when water is turned on elsewhere

We had our bathroom remodeled not quite a year ago and put in a new Kohler toilet (among other things including replacing our galvanized pipes). We've noticed recently that when we turn on the water in any part of the house, this toilet seems to run. And it seems to be getting worse (running longer and longer). I've fixed running toilets before but this seems so weird since it runs when the water is turned on in other places. Anyone know why?

And if it's at least in part that the rubber stopper is leaking, isn't awfully soon for this to happen? I mean we haven't even had the toilet a year yet! I'm very frustrated!
