RE: S6 Brake Light

This cropped up shortly _after_ the bomb failed on my '94 S4. The bomb was
definitely bad, failed the usual tests etc., but about a week after the new
one was put in, the light came back. After testing everything, the solution
(from AofA, no less) was:

Overfill the hydraulic fluid resevoir, and the sensor will
activate/deactivate properly.

YMMV, etc...
