If you still have problem with your brakes,check your flex lines.One or more of them may be colapsed internaly.In that case brake fluid will travel to the caliper/wheel cylinder under pressure,but it will take some time for that caliper/wheel cylinder to release due to colapsed flex line.Find out which wheel tends to drag,than check flex line to that wheel.This will most likely solve your problem if master cylinder did not.

If this brake problem occures right after brake was applyed,your flex lines could be problem.Looks like that is not case with your car.In that case if brakes start braking on they own while you are accelerating,I think you have booster problem.To find out, you can disconect booster(plug vaccum line),drive car on the parking lot and see if same problem occures again(braking will take much more effort without booster).If wheels stop draging,you will know what is your problem.I hope this will help you.

P.S. If your brake pedal is pulsating, and/or steering wheel is shaking, you most likely have warped rotors due to overheated brakes!

For sure, I was driving around with the master screwed for too long.
