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)
