BIG Issue with 1.7 install.... multiple utils missing: mount, cygcheck, mkpasswd, etc

I wonder if anyone else has seen this issue, but after installing 1.7
from setup.exe, starting up cygwin causes it to complain about not
being able to find /usr/bin/sed, and the shell also doesn't seem to be
fully functional either (delete key doesn't work, less is not working
properly ... etc).
	It appears several files are missing.
I have no mkpasswd or group, no mount.  Don't know what else is missing.
I do have 'sed', but it might have been there from before (I didn't reinstall

I've done a cygcheck -c to see if any packages had missing files.

cygwin-doc and gcc4-<something> -- I reinstalled them but it changed nothing.

I didn't really expect it to, since package 'cygwin' is supposed to contain mkpasswd, and it was listed as complete.

	As for 'sed', I've noticed many (packages are missing pre-requisites).  Do you
have the 'sed' package loaded?  Is it complete?  (cygcheck -c sed)
