Answers :

It could be the master cylinder leaking back into the power booster. If there's enough room remove the nuts holding it and without disconnecting the anything else see if you can pull it out enough to shine a light to see if there is any brake fluid in the power booster. It should be dry in there. If there's brake fluid in there, reinstall the nuts before trying to disconnect the brake lines and be sure to get all of the brake fluid out of the power booster before you install the new master cylinder.
Some of it went into the slaves as the shoe material was worn away.
