I have bled all the lines. The car is a 1600 sedan with drum rears, and unknown twin piston calipers and vented rotors on the front.
With the engine off when I pump the pedal it does not get any harder and when I start the engine the pedal does not drop. In my other two cars they have a hard pedal when pumped before starting and when started the pedal drops slightly.
Does this mean my booster is rooted?
Yeah i'd suggest that either the booster is busted, or blocked. Check for blockages throughout the braking hydrolics, including master cylinder.

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
