If you are pushing hard on the brakes, the air in the lines will be compressed and heat up. Since ABS will alter line pressure to prevent lockup, it is reasonable it may not be able to function properly if the brake fluid has air (or contamination). Instead of a sharp pressure variation, it would be 'mushy'. Once a wheel loses traction, it will take a sharp brake pressure drop to get it rolling again.
