water leaking from bottom of furnace....

I have a bungalow house that sits on a crawl space so the furnace & a/c unit is up stairs. A new furnace was put in February 2001 without a/c. Last May I had central air put in & everything worked great. It was hot here last week in Michigan so I turned the a/c on. The next day I noticed the paint in the ceiling below the furnace was sagging & filled with water. I went upstairs to find out what was wrong & noticed that the line from the little pump that pumps the condensation water from the a/c was bone dry. The pump has an access hole on the top & you can see there is water in it. I messed around with the pump & tried to take it apart & it kicked on. So... my question is; do you think something came apart inside the a/c unit or did the water backup & leaked from inside the furnace? There was no sign of water around the pump; the water definitely came from inside the furnace on the opposite side from where the pump is. Any ideas?

Either the condensate line is clogged, not piped right, or the pan is cracked.
