I cannot reproduce the problem with Time Shifter, but it cannot
move tracks that are not selected. It can move both channels 
of stereo tracks if you also put a time value in the "Right channel 
shift" field. 

Are you sure you are using Audacity 2.0.5 from here: 
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/  ?

Does Cuong's solution suit you:

 For example, I have my voice in track 1, and my music in track2
 1. Unselect all track (Ctrl+Shift+a)
 2. Solo track 1 (Shift+s)
 3. play track 1 until the place where the music should be started, and 
    shift+a to stop, and move the cursor to that place.
 4. Select track 2 by navigating to it and press enter
 5. Menu track (alt+t), choose align track sub menu, and choose start to  
     cursor selection start ?
