Clutch pedal goes to the floor?

I know we've covered the clutch-pedal-bushing issue for pedals that go all the way to the floor, and but how about one that goes to the floor... and STAYS THERE?!

I just got done with the clutch job this weekend, my wife helped me bleed the clutch and it went into all gears, so I called it good. But now twice, the pedal has gone all the way to the floor, and stays right there! I had to flick it up with my toe, and on the next pedal stroke, it was fine. Fortunately, both times it happened at a stop.

Did I miss some air in the system somehow? I followed the standard bleeding procedure (pushing the slave cylinder to force the fluid and air back up the line), which seemed to work, but if it happens mid-shift while on the road, it might be an issue! Any suggestions?

i ran into this problem on my old 94 turbo idi... went through three slave cylinders within 4 months... it ended up that someone before me installed the wrong slave cylinder, went up to ford shop and got the right part.. never happened again..

Well, as it turns out it must have been air in the MC. We just got back from a trip to Missouri, and apart from the alternator seizing up (just AFTER we got there, praise God!) and eating the fan belt, we had no problems. Not a single problem with the clutch since then, so I guess it's solved.
