Perhaps the attached patch will solve of some confusion. You could have
100 nodes in the db, and if none of them are promoted to the front
page, you get the welcome message. This patch would say 'No content is
currently promoted to the front page.' instead of acting like it's a
fresh install. Diff'ed against HEAD.

After successful setup, settings of access permissions, etc., site was
working fine--new setup welcome message was replaced with first post. 
However, next day, setup welcome message was back.

Access control for node module is enabled for anonymous users.  All
other permissions have been reviewed with no known conflicts.  Default
node is "node".  Clean URLs are enabled.

This issue seems to be a bug instead of a single incident.  After
looking at virtually every post on the support forums that seemed to
apply to this issue, I was unable to find a solution.  Upon uninstall
and new install, problem disappeared--for now.  No known solution to
the problem; in fact, no idea what the actual cause of the problem is. 
However, this is not an isolated incident.

No, the node_privacy_by_role module was not installed or in use.

please give us some more details:
What third party modules do you use?
What errors and messages do you se in the watchdog?
Do you have a backup system that might flush the database?

Marking this "normal", for critical should be read as "critical for
Drupal", and not as "critical for me"
