I would hazard a guess and say that it may be the master cylinder is failing, the seals may be shot. The booster doesn't stop you, it provides assist to make it easier to stop. Do you remember the days of manual braking systems? If the master cylinder seals are bad, it could cause the brakes to lock up, remember you're pushing the pedal all the way to the floor, that would be way more then maximum braking if all worked, could be like an abs system with a faulty wheel sensor, that wheel can do strange things. I would carefully check all wheels seperately for any leakage, however with the brake system, even if one line, wheel cylinder whatever leaked, there should still be some stopping ability, the system is designed that way to have at least one diagonal set of brakes able to slow the car down.
