So, following the blog post at http://blog.macromates.com/2011/multiple-carets/, I place my cursor at the first line of a selection that I want to edit, and press shift-option-down. However, rather than selecting an additional line with every keystroke, it appears to jump arbitrarily between selecting single and multiple additional lines.

You want just “shift down” for extending one line down.

The behavior of “shift option down” is explained here: http://manual.macromates.com/en/working_with_text#column_movement_typing and is quite handy when creating column selections.
