I"ve also seen this on Ingo's car last winter. The alluminum of the
clutch pedal broke, causing exactly what you are describing. This was
on one of the 5-speed V8's, but the pedals are the same. In the case
of Ingo's car, it also broke the master cylinder actuation rod, so the
master had to be repalced.

I've also done quite a few Master/Slave's on type44 and type 81/85
Audi's and I'd highly recommend replacing both of them together, since
they are nearly twenty years old.
