I don't thing the non-bleeding brake caliper could be a result of a blockage
before the pistons, as the car brakes in a straight line (in as much as it
brakes at all...), there is no pulling to one side. If a pipe is blocked,
that brake would not work, and the car would pull hard to the passenger side
under braking. However, I may replace all my rubber hoses anyway (depending
on cost) with braided hoses, as this should reduce pedal softness resulting
from pipe expansion under pressure - advice from Eric. I doubt this is my
main problem, but anything that improves brakes must be a good idea!

Perhaps the rubber hose on the bad brake has swollen internally or has
gotten plugged up.
P.S.: It sound like it might be a good idea to change the front pads
again, so you don't have one more worn than all the others.
Good thing they're cheap. (Maybe it would be a good idea
to buy a different brand than you got before...)
