>From experience with modern cylinders...your cylinder has begun to allow the 
fluid to leak past the primary cup allowing the pressure to drop to the 
shoes.  The cylinder will develop small pits that you won't see with visual 
inspection.  Replace the cylinder to solve the problem of which you should be 
able to do yourself.  I recommend getting a shop manual to help you diagnose 
and repair.  You might also have an external leak that you should look for 
before settling on the cylinder, but I'm betting that its the problem.  "Been 
there, done that" a couple of times!

Hope I helped,
