The plot thickens....
Taking your good advice, I went out to the car and began checking the
hydraulic cylinders, linkage, etc. Lo and behold, I had concentrated on
things external to the cockpit, and upon taking a drop light into the
footwell to inspect the linkage, I discovered the interior end of the master
cylinder to be quit wet with some sort of dirty, mucky fluid... a leak! A
small one, but a leak...
I'm guessing the best course of action is to pull the master and disassemble
it. If it looks rebuildable, do it; if not, replace it? Bleed the whole
system out and try it again.

No problem there, either.

Thanks, I'm glad you inspired me to take another look.
