I agree a weak or poorly bled slave could cause the identified symptoms. (Not enough travel of the cylinder for complete disengagement.)
I also know that a pilot bearing on the way out can cause these symptoms. (Binding of the clutch shaft to flywheel.)
Your thin clutch argument seems screwy. Doesn't matter in this case since he said he reused the same clutch, but...
Once the clutch disc wears too much, there is no longer enough preload from the pressure plate to keep the disc from slipping relative to the flywheel. This is why worn clutches slip. At this point it only takes a small amount of slave cylinder movement to disengage the clutch enough to slip. (i.e. Clutch disengages at top of pedal travel.) Clutches that catch really low in the travel are usually due to the clutch master/slave, not the clutch disc itself.
I have had a couple of cars with a burned-out clutch, and have NEVER had a problem "keeping the car from moving"; in fact the opposite is true.
