For those of us trying to figure out the time shifter plugin, I have found out 
one method that works best for me. I am running Audacity 2.0.5 and although the 
issue is still there about undo selecting both tracks, you can unselect them 
manually. This is the method however that I discovered worked best for me.

Rather than just selecting the track that you want shifted, and than entering 
the effects menu and choosing time shifter, 

I first select the track I want shifted,
then select the whole length of the track with j for mac users or home for 
windows users, followed by a shift K for mac or a shift end for windows users. 
This selects the whole length of the track, then I select the time shifter 
effect and I find that because this sound is selected that time shifter only 
works on this material. Hope this helps other people.
