Basic editing question. The audacity video implies that placing the cursor at the point you want to re-record is all that is necessary to open a new track. When I place the cursor where I want and hit record, it automatically jumps to the end of the original recording and starts from there. What am I doing wrong?

An old version of Audacity behaved as you describe. Now you should hold down the Shift key when you hit Record, to get it to start recording at the cursor. :)
